48 Hours for Life: Nashville

The Diocese of Nashville’s Office for Youth and Young Adult Ministry hosted the first-ever ‘48 Hours for Life: Nashville’ Jan. 29-31, coinciding with the annual March for Life weekend.

High school students from around the diocese participated in a weekend of activities centered around the Catholic church’s teaching on the sanctity of life at all stages.

The weekend opened with a Mass at the Cathedral of the Incarnation celebrated by Bishop J. Mark Spalding, followed by a talk by U.S. Senator Bill Hagerty.

Other activities included: praying outside Planned Parenthood; a tour of Mulier Care’s mobile “Pregnancy Help Center”; a talk from Julie Bolles and Deasree Williams, of Catholic Charities’ adoption services, and Mass at St. Mary’s Church downtown.
