Please make plans to attend Festival de la Vie on Saturday, Jan. 15, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The festival will be held at Parc International, 200 Garfield St. in downtown Lafayette, and attendees will celebrate life by praying for a greater respect for every life, especially the unborn and vulnerable.
Festival de la Vie is hosted by the Diocese of Lafayette. Louisiana Right to Life and Louisiana Black Advocates for Life are among event sponsors.
A pro-life ecumenical prayer walk begins at 9:30 a.m. with five prayer stations: unborn, stronger families, individuals with disabilities, most vulnerable, and elderly and dying. At 10:30 praise and worship will be led by James and Kristen Opdenhoff, and testimonies will be given.
At 11:30 there will be free food, games, music and a photo booth to enjoy.
