France: thousands plan to March for Life | March for Life, France
seventh annual March for Life in France will take
place in Paris this Sunday January 23 at 2.30pm. The
march will begin at the Place de la
République. On the previous evening, Saturday
January 22, a prayer vigil is taking place at 8.30 pm
in Saint Francis Xavier Church, Place du
Président Mithouard (7th district), Paris.
The event has grown in size from year to year since it was
first held. The 2010 March was a huge success. Attendances
at past marches have reached between 15,000 to 20,000
peaceful participants, many of whom are young people under
the age of 25.
Delegations from other European countries usually attend
and the organisers once again expect that there will be a
significant attendance from across Europe.
