March For Life Preparation

The process and paperwork necessary to assure the safety of those who attend can be a bit daunting.  Therefore, we have made this step by step guide available to assist those who intend to bring a group.  You may also download this PDF Checklist to confirm you have accomplished all the steps


Step 1.  Order Tickets to the Youth Mass.  These tickets are free, but they must be ordered no later than *October 3rd.

The Archdiocese of Cincinnati has been assigned our ticket allotment request.  More details will follow as to how and when you will receive your order.  Our location will be the Verizon Center, 601 F St. NW, Washington, DC.  Please note that the Mass will be at 9:30 AM this year, which is a half hour earlier than in previous years. 

Step 2.  Have each adult (18 and older) fill out an Archdiocese of Cincinnati Emergency Release Form for Adults.  Have the parents or legal guardians of each youth (17 and younger) fill out an Archdiocese of Cincinnati Release Form for children

Step 3.  Confirm that each adult (18+) is on record with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati as having completed a Virtus (child safety) Training and having passed the background check.  You may do this by contacting the Safe Environment Coordinator of your parish, or by contacting the Office of Safe Environment for Youth and Children

Step 4.   Have each person fill-out the Archdiocese of Washington Image release Waiver. Parents or legal guardians must fill out this form for their children under 18. These forms are to satisfy requirements for the Archdiocese of Washington.
