For Life.

Special thanks to everyone who joined us in praying for life at the 2018 March for Life in Washington, DC. Together our Marianist high schools had over 200 students in attendance representing their classmates.

We spent our two days in prayer, touring and fun throughout our stay in the nation's Capitol. For several hours we walked the Basilica together in awe. Chapel after chapel was explained in detail and symbols now understood. But the real purpose for our visit to Washington DC was to exercise our freedoms of speech and petition. Roe v. Wade was a Supreme Court decision decided in 1973 making abortion legal in the United States. The issue of abortion and a woman’s right to choose has remained controversial and politically charged ever since. We were witnesses. Witnessed for life.
