Diocesan March for Life Pilgrimage
Due to the overturning of Roe vs. Wade, the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend will not be attending the March for Life in January of 2023. Instead, we are encouraging our youth, families, and communities to support mothers and unborn children through the Walking with Moms in Need initiative.
