March For Life

  • The 2018 March for Life in Washington, DC could not have gone any smoother! Along with an estimated 800,000 participants, the purple hats from the Archdiocese of New Orleans proudly marched in support of life from conception till natural death. Throughout the week, the students attended rallies and conferences which fed their mind, body, and spirit. The Geaux Fourth Rally, which is sponsored by Louisiana Right to Life, was held in D.C. a few days before the march and was open only to Louisiana marchers. It was absolutely incredible to see so many high school and college students, young adults, religious, and clergy all from Louisiana all gathered to celebrate LIFE! After the Geaux Fourth Rally, the students went to the Saint John Paul II Shrine where they were able to enjoy the museum and pray in front of a first class relic of JP2! Later that evening the buses took our groups to George Mason University to attend the Life is Very Good concert! At the event, the students danced to music from The After, enjoyed a homily from Bishop Burbidge, and prayed with thousands of fellow Catholics during Eucharistic Adoration. The next day the groups headed out to mass and then made their way to the Washington Monument for the 2018 March for Life! The march was absolutely amazing. The participants were so prayerful and hopeful! With hundreds of thousands of Pro-Lifers around us, we truly felt the presence of God with us and on our side--the beautiful weather helped too! After the march, the Archdiocese of New Orleans groups were then led to the Dirksen Senate Building where they shared their experience with their peers and "unpacked the march". All in all, it was an absolutely beautiful and rewarding experience.
