From the venue:

On Thursday, June 11, 2020, Catholics from parishes across the Archdiocese of Atlanta and Archbishop Gregory John Hartmayer are uniting in solidarity with the black community to peacefully and prayerfully march through the streets of downtown Atlanta to raise their collective voices against racial injustice and the sin of racism.

The faithful will congregate outside at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception at 3:15pm-4pm ET. At 4pm there will be a short prayer service before they process through the downtown area, visiting such landmarks as Atlanta City Hall and the Georgia State Capitol for a moment of prayer. The march will finish at Centennial Olympic Park for final prayers and a symbolic period of 8 minutes and 46 seconds in sacred silence to honor those who have lost their lives in the ongoing fight for racial equality in the United States.

This will also be live-streamed as well if you cannot be physically present to join us. If you cannot be physically present to march with us, please use this form to let us know you will be joining us in prayer and one of the marches will wear your name on a tag during the march.
