March for Our Lives – Washington DC Meeting Place, Time Update

By the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland

The Diocese of Washington and Bishops United Against Gun Violence ask that Episcopalians gather between 9:00-10:00 AM at the Church of the Epiphany, 1317 G Street, NW, and march together. The Diocese of Washington has details here. Congregations and groups, please complete this form to let them know you’re joining the march. We are no longer planning to meet at the Taft Memorial.

Transportation – We encourage you to take public transit to the march. Metro Center on the Red, Blue, and Orange lines is the closest stop to the Church of the Epiphany, exit on the 13th Street side. Follow these links for Washington Metro and Maryland MARC Train information.

Clergy are encouraged to wear cassocks or clericals and orange stoles – orange stoles may be found here: http://churchgoers.com.

Apparel – All are encouraged to wear orange or red. March for Our Lives also has a Cafe Press Store.

Publicize the March for Our Lives on your church sign and share our Facebook event.

Email us, communications@episcopalmaryland.org, and let the Diocese of Washington know if your congregation plans to attend.

Washington National Cathedral will host an Interfaith Prayer Vigil from 7:00-9:00 PM on March 23. Register to attend the vigil here.
