Event description


March with All Saints' Chicago at Historic MARCH FOR OUR LIVES

Who wants to join us?

The people of All Saints' Chicago, St. John's Episcopal Church Chicago, St. Matthew's Episcopal Church (Evanston, IL), and St. Augustine's Episcopal Church (Wilmette, IL), St. Paul and the Redeemer, and St. Luke's Episcopal Church Evanston will take three buses as to Washington, D.C., to join the survivors of the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in the first March for Our Lives - March on Washington.

We will leave Chicago Friday evening; arrive early on Saturday for the march; and leave Saturday evening to arrive back in Chicago for Palm Sunday.

You do not need to be a member of All Saints' to attend; you don't need to be a Christian, even. You do need to have a deep desire to see gun violence end. Forever.

Let's make peace and justice a reality in this country.

A special notes form The Rev. Dr. Bonnie A. Perry:

Dear Friends,

I invite you to join me on a pilgrimage to Washington DC on March 24th to support the young people from Florida who are marching in memory of their slain friends, murdered in their high school. I believe this journey to DC or a shorter trip to Downtown Chicago needs to be an intrinsic part of our Lenten Discipline this year. This country can no longer sigh and wring our collective hands and be lulled into thinking that there is nothing else we can do. We can show up. We can show up by the thousands, by the hundreds. That showing up begins when each one of us changes a plan and alters a schedule to be there to show we care. Because we do.

For DC, We’ll leave Friday evening at 5:00, March 23rd. We’ll March during the day on the 24th. And return Saturday night so that we all may be back in time for Palm Sunday Services, March 25th. Know that the procession we take part in on Saturday will be a Palm Sunday Procession for the world and not just our church.

I hope you can be there, with your family and friends in either DC or Downtown.

All my best,
