High school youth are invited attend the 2020 Weekend for Life Jan. 18-19 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Little Rock. This overnight lock-in focuses on right-to-life issues from a youth perspective. It is held the night before the annual Mass and March for Life in Little Rock.
It begins on Saturday night and includes a speaker, praise and worship music, prayer, skits and dance. This year's keynote speaker is Cheryl Ward Kaiser, who will share her story about her husband being shot by intruders who broke into her home demanding money. Come and listen to "how she exercised her right as a victim to meet the offenders and how she had the opportunity through the movement dubbed 'restorative justice' to share with them how their crime harmed her and the community as well."
On Sunday morning, participants will join Catholics of all ages from across Arkansas in a Eucharistic Procession for Life, from the Doubletree Hotel through Riverfront Park to the Statehouse Convention Center in downtown Little Rock where the Mass for Life will be celebrated at noon. Weekend for Life participants will have a box lunch after Mass and then join others in the statewide March for Life with rally at the state Capitol, which includes prayers, speakers and music at 2 p.m.
The cost is $55 for youth and $65 for adult chaperones. Scholarships are available. Register though your parish by Dec. 23. To register your parish, download and return the registration packet with fee to the address provided. Weekend for Life is sponsored by the diocesan Catholic Youth Ministry Office.
