This photo was taken at the Third Annual Nellie Grey Mass sponsored by the Paulus Institute at St Mary Mother of God Church in Washington D.C. during the 2015 March for Life.

The priests celebrating this mass are The Franciscans of the Immaculate. The order of priests was founded by the two Franciscan friars, Fr. Stefano Maria Manelli and Fr. Gabriel Maria Pellettieri. Together they outlined a form of life for the friars, sisters and the laity after the example of St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe, giving the fullest expression to the Marian dimension of St. Francis’ ideal and Rule. The Franciscans of the Immaculate was established by Pope John Paul II in 1990 as a diocesan institute. The Institute was erected as a pontifical institute of religious life by His Holiness John Paul II in January 1, 1998, Solemnity of the Mother of God.
