2017 March for Life Pilgrimage
Last week, eight De La Salle students joined several hundred teenagers from across the Archdiocese of New Orleans on the March for Life Pilgrimage to Washington D.C. Upon arriving in D.C. the student joined with hundreds of thousands people of all ages and diverse backgrounds. The Cavaliers with chaperone, President Michael Giambelluca, departed Tuesday evening for a five-day trip in support of the dignity and respect for life at all ages. The Cavaliers traveled with the support of the Archdiocese of New Orleans CYO/Youth and Young Adult Ministry Office and once in D.C. they met with several hundred other local participants sponsored by Catholic schools and other pro-life ministries.
What is the March for Life?
The March for Life began in Washington, D.C., as a small demonstration and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The peaceful demonstration that has followed on the somber anniversary of Roe v. Wade every year since 1973 is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, legalized abortion on demand. Learn more at http://marchforlife.org/.
