On Friday, Jan. 27, several students and faculty from St. Gregory’s attended the 44th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. to participate in the march against abortion.

March for Life in Washington D.C. is the world’s largest annual pro-life demonstration. Several well-known speakers also attended the march, including Vice President Mike Pence as well as Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York Cardinal, and Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson.

Jacob Farni, a senior at St. Gregory’s, made his second trip to Washington D.C. to participate at March for Life.

“My experience at the March for Life was truly a profound, formative, and inspiring experience,” said Farni. “It brought a great hope to those who are pro-life in that it showed us that Christ is with all of us who stand up for the truth. Seeing the great multitude of people brought great joy and pride to my heart.”
