March for Life Chicago Convention
Hilton Hotel — 720 South Michigan Avenue
Doors open at 8 a.m.
Rally from 9 – 11:30 a.m.
Rally praise and worship leaders are Mark and Abby Dufrene.
Mark and Abby Dufrene are from a small town in South Louisiana and have 2 young boys, Fulton and John Paul. Chasing around their two toddlers is hard, but also a ton of fun, teaching them so much through day-to-day life—loving, forgiving, serving, and praying together every day.
Mark is a private practice counselor, Catholic mindset coach, and musician. His gift of music has allowed him the chance to play in all kinds of places for all kinds of people, in churches, bars, theaters, hunting camps, homes, rallies, and everywhere in between. Mark writes his own music as well. He mixes elements of folk, blues, and singer-songwriter style; Mark’s first album, Living in Between, is set to be released in early 2022.
Abby is an occupational therapist, Catholic mindset coach, and a forever learner. Abby’s love for learning led her and Mark as a young, dating couple, to a teaching known as the Theology of the Body, written by St. John Paul II (now you know where they got their second son’s name!). This teaching rocked their world and revealed to them for the first time the gift and dignity of every person. Since then, they have enjoyed ministering alongside Brian Butler and the rest of the team at Dumb Ox Ministries, journeying with teens, young adults, and married couples. They enjoy sharing at events, retreats, and missions what God has done (& still is doing) in their hearts and in their family.
