Metropolitan Methodios also attended the National Prayer Vigil for Life at The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on Jan. 21, the evening before the march.
The rally began at noon on the National Mall at 12th Street. Orthodox Christian marchers gathered under the “Orthodox Christians for Life” banner and signs.
The march began at 1 p.m. and proceeded along Constitution Avenue to the U.S. Supreme Court, where prayers for the victims of abortion were offered.
