Please check out the virtual Vigil for Life that the Dominicans of St. Dominic’s Church are hosting on the eve of the Walk for Life (Friday, January 22nd). Join them for vespers and Mass for the Unborn at 5:00 pm. The link is here.
The Walk for Life Mass will be at St. Mary’s Cathedral at 1111 Gough St at 10:30 am. Please note the new time. Thank you.
Because of pandemic-related rules, we are unable to obtain an event and sound permits this year so our Rally is cancelled. BUT, we will still meet at 12:30PM at Civic Center Plaza, and proceed to Walk down Market Street. As we walk we will have portable amplified sound, so we will be inspired by the soaring oratory of the Reverend Clenard Childress and others!
There has never been a more critical time to make a public witness of peaceful affirmation to the sanctity of human life. The Walk for Life West Coast has always been a lamp set on a mountaintop for the entire country to see and we WILL shine our light into the darkness. Despite the lockdown of the last 9 months, the City of San Francisco allowe
d people to exercise their First Amendment rights, and we will too … because we still stand for the lives of women who are hurt from abortion, and we stand for the lives of the unborn threatened by abortion!
We WILL have the presence and protection of our good SFPD during the Walk. As always, we will take precautions to allow for the safety and health of all, but this year personal responsibility will be paramount. We ask that participants be self-reliant and look out for one another during the Walk. Small things like taking care of your own trash to bigger things like staying safe in groups during our walk down Market Street will go a long way in making this year’s Walk a success. Besides being extra aware of the possibility of protestors, we ask that all the health requirements for the City of San Francisco be followed.
If you cannot join us this year, we encourage you to raise your voices in prayer and instead, use your resources to help build a better future for women and children. Since we won’t all be side-by-side for 2021, we have a new opportunity in a unified way to join fellow Walkers in supporting Bella Health and Wellness building fund. If you are not attending, please consider contributing instead by donating to the future health of San Francisco’s women and children (learn more about Bella Health & Wellness here).
To help us to plan properly in this unique time, we ask for your help. Please let us know if you, your family or your group plan to join us. You can do this on our easy-to-use google form, here. You can also let us know if you’re coming by going to our Facebook event page here. Please forward these links to your friends and your lists and tell them the Walk IS on and ask them to let us know if they’re coming. Thank you very much!
Let our voices be heard in prayer and unity in San Francisco. It’s still the time to share the message of peace and love for women and the unborn!
And on January 23, 2021 it is time to Walk for the most silent and vulnerable among us at
the 17th Annual Walk for Life West Coast!
Civic Center Plaza, 12:30 PM
Prepare for Cancellation: Please be aware of the possibility of a last-minute cancellation of the Walk for Life on Jan. 23, due to potential changes from the City of San Francisco, or for general public safety. We will update the status on our website and through email so it is imperative that you sign up for our newsletter and keep checking the website.
