Father Denis Wilde, OSA, Associate Director of Priests for Life, will play an integral part during one of his favorite annual events, the Face the Truth Tour in Maryland, from July 29 through Aug. 2.

“This multigenerational event brings the truth of abortion to many towns in Maryland and even to the White House,” Father Denis said.

Organized by Defend Life, the tour uses abortion victim imagery to make sure everyone who sees the pictures understands what’s being chosen when a mother exercises her “right to choose.”

High school and college students take part in the event, along with pro-life leaders like Father Denis and Jack Ames, and others who volunteer to take a stand for life in the public square.

The group has lunch together at Catholic churches in towns they are visiting, and get to hear from a group of dynamic speakers. This year, Detective Bob Wood, the lead investigator who discovered Kermit Gosnell’s “House of Horrors” in Philadelphia, will speak at the lunch at 1:15 p.m. Monday, July 29 in the Parish Center of St. Mary’s Church in Hagerstown, Maryland.

Mary O’Connor Ward, sister of late New York Cardinal John J. O’Connor, will speak at lunch on Thursday, Aug. 1, in the Parish Hall of Pius X Church in Baltimore. Mrs. Ward has been a long-time friend of Priests for Life. Cardinal O’Connor ordained Father Frank Pavone, National Director, in 1988 and gave him permission in 1993 to do full-time pro-life work and assume the reins of a fledgling organization called Priests for Life.

Volunteers are still welcome to take part in the tour and everyone is welcome to attend the lunches. Reservations are not required. Click here for the full schedule.

These year’s tour is dedicated to the memory of Barbara Margaret, a pro-life activist who did sidewalk counseling from her signature three-wheeled motorcycle. She died in March 2019.
