March for Life 2012
January 24, 2012
On Monday, January 23, friars from the Dominican House of Studies joined thousands of pro-life advocates on the annual March for Life in Washington, DC. Marching together under the banner “Dominican Friars for Life,” the friars were joined by parishioners from the Dominican parishes of St. Patrick (Columbus, OH), St. Gertrude (Cincinnati, OH) and St. Dominic (Youngstown, OH), students from Providence College, and sisters from the congregations of St. Cecilia and Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. Together with the special Masses and Holy Hours celebrated over the course of the weekend, the March was a beautiful opportunity to witness to the sanctity of life and to join in prayer for an end to abortion.
