Twenty Holy Cross Students to Participate in the March For Life in Washington, D.C.

January 24th, 2013 by 


Twenty students from the College of the Holy Cross traveled to Washington, D.C. to participate in the March for Life on Jan. 25, the annual pro-life rally protesting abortion.

Students took part in a Mass on campus the night before the event, led by Rev. James Hayes, S.J., associate chaplain. After the Mass, students left for D.C. on a charter bus. When they arrived, they joined students from Jesuit high schools and colleges across the country at St. Aloysius Gonzaga Parish Church, then attended a rally at the National Mall. The march began right after the rally; participants marched up Constitution Avenue to the Supreme Court building on Capitol Hill.

After the march, the students will visit the Holocaust Museum. They will spend the night in D.C., in order to attend the 14th Annual Cardinal O’Connor Conference at Georgetown University on Jan. 26, the nation’s largest student-run pro-life conference, which brings students, faculty, clergy, and activists together in the memory of Cardinal John Joseph O’Connor.

The students will return back to the College after the conference. 

For the past 12 years Holy Cross students have participated in the March for Life.
