Irondale, AL, Jan. 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- It's January - and you know what that means! Hundreds of thousands of our nation's pro-life heroes will descend upon Washington, D.C. for the 42nd Annual March for Life. As always, EWTN will be there - and this year, we're inviting you to be online and on-air with us in a new way!
The theme for this year's March for Life is "Every Life is A Gift." We're inviting you to send us a short video that illustrates this theme in your own life. Did you go through with a pregnancy after a difficult diagnosis? Did you or a loved one find life worth living even after being diagnosed with a serious or even terminal illness? Do you love life despite (or even as a result of) your disability?
Please send us a 10 to 60 second video on this theme - or a link to the video from one of your social media sites -- and we may post it on EWTN's own social media sites - which reach more than 600,000 people; it could even be aired! Send in videos NOW to email@example.com.
Whether you access EWTN from D.C. using your mobile phone or watch/listen on TV, radio, the Internet, and more, you'll want to tune in to EWTN to get a view of the March that you simply can't get when you're in the middle of the crowd! As always, EWTN President and "Bookmark" Host Doug Keck and EWTN Chaplain Father Joseph Mary will anchor EWTN's coverage. On the ground coverage, which will include interviews of marchers, speakers, and other surprise guests, will be provided by the intrepid Teresa Tomeo ("Catholic Connection"/"Catholic View for Women") and the "EWTN News Nightly" team headed by Anchor Brian Patrick.
The event begins at 6:30 p.m. ET, Wednesday, Jan. 21 with the "Opening Mass of the National Prayer Vigil for Life," which airs live from the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. On March Day, tune in at 7:30 a.m. ET, for Mass from the Basilica; at 9 am. ET, for all the pre-March excitement; and at noon ET for the speeches and the March down Constitution Avenue to the offices of your Congressional Representatives. (Check www.ewtn.com for encores.) Also, at 9 p.m. ET, don't miss "EWTN News Nightly's" special one-hour recap of the day's events.
Can't make it to D.C. Check out EWTN's pro-life page, www.ewtn.com/prolife where we have posted the Twitter handles of your House and Senate representatives - and a lot more. Let your representatives know that you are pro-life and that, as your representative, you want them to vote that way too!
