The March For Life event in St. Augustine mimics the March For Life that takes place in Washington D.C. Since the commute from southern states like Florida, to Washington D.C. is a long one, St. Augustine has hosted a similar march since 2007. In recent years, more than 3,500 marchers have attended this demonstration from Florida and beyond.
Join us at the Mission Nombre de Dios to be a part of this great event. The march is appropriate for anyone who believes in the sanctity of human life.

Castillo Dr., then along St. George St., to the Plaza de la Constitucion for an event lasting until 2:00 pm. During the procession, which lasts less than 30 minutes, vehicular traffic along San Marco Ave. south of Mission Ave. will be interrupted.
To avoid delays during the event motorists may wish to use Ponce de Leon Blvd (U.S. 1) rather than San Marco Ave., and are urged to use caution in the vicinity of the Plaza from noon until approximately 2:00 pm because of the increased number of pedestrians in the area.
