Marching for the Sanctity of Life


Gathered together Orthodox Christians marched for the Sanctity of life.  OnSunday, January 21, 2018 was observed as “Sanctity of Life Sunday” in parishes across the United States.  The commemoration marks the 45th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the US. Metropolitan Tikhon led the Orthodox Christian delegation with prayers and his message on the Sanctity of Life.
