Life is Beautiful: Celebrating Life Across Generations

Life is Beautiful Mass & Reception is the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Annual Respect Life Mass. Taking the place of an Archdiocesan Mass during Respect Life month so that parishes can better celebrate Respect Life Month locally, Life is Beautiful takes place annually the Sunday prior to the national March for Life. At the Mass, celebrated by the Most Rev. William E. Lori, two awardees are recognized for their outstanding pro-life work and witness with the Life is Beautiful and Culture of Life awards. Pilgrims to the March for Life are blessed at the end of the Mass. A reception follows, where our guest speaker will give a dynamic talk while our guest enjoy a meal with family and friends. 


This year’s Life is Beautiful Mass will take place at the beautiful Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (409 Cathedral St. Baltimore, MD 21201). The Most Rev. William E. Lori, Archbishop of Baltimore, will be the homilist and celebrant. Mass will begin at 10:45am, followed by a complimentary lunch reception in the Archbishop Border’s Hall in the Catholic Center (320 Cathedral St. Baltimore, MD 21201) across the street.
