Join Us Saturday for the First Annual OK March for Life!

The event is open to families, parish groups, students, young adults and seniors, and will be child-friendly. Tickets and reservations are not required.

“This is an exciting milestone for the state and the Catholic Church in Oklahoma. It will be a time to come together with other faiths to celebrate life and show our support for pregnant moms, families and the unborn,” said Deacon Joe Vandervort, respect life coordinator for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City.

“We hope Oklahoma Catholics will take a little time out of a Saturday to come and pray, and show support for the innocent unborn and this important initiative.”

Speakers at the rally include Tulsa Bishop David Konderla, Todd Fisher, Ph.D., executive director of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, and U.S. Sen. James Lankford.

The walk will begin on the north side of the state capitol and move south, ending in Midtown. Maps will be distributed at the event. Shuttles will be located at the beginning, middle and end of the march route, and signs are available.
