Pro-life supporters marched in below-zero temperatures around the state Capitol grounds Jan. 22 during Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life's annual March for Life and rally on the Capitol steps in St. Paul. The event began with an ecumenical prayer service at the Cathedral of St. Paul. During the service, Bishop Lee Piché recognized the many teenagers and young adults present and thanked them for giving hope to the future of the pro-life movement. Afterward, many braved the cold to march to the Capitol while others stayed to pray at the Cathedral. (Dianne Towalski/The Catholic Spirit)
