March for Life Bus Signup

Looking for volunteers and signups for the bus to the Arizona March for Life.  I received an email yesterday from the Arizona State Council on registering the bus we are sponsoring, asking for any open seats, and volunteers to “Marshall” at the event.  We still having over 40 open seats on our bus according to our Sign Up Genius List.  This number may be less however with parishioners signing up directly with our OLMC Respect Life Group. Anyone who would like to sign up to ride there with us can do so via the Sign UP genius at this link:

Carmel Catholic Church to support the initiative.  Please join us for fun, and to support a worthy cause.  Tickets are $30/person.   In addition, volunteers are needed to help after each Mass with taking reservations and handing out flyers.
