March For Life

  • The 2020 March for Life in Washington, DC could not have gone any smoother! Along with a little under 1 million 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 tour the White House, Washington Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial. 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, enjoyed an amazing homily, 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 2020 March for Life! The march was absolutely amazing. The participants were so prayerful and hopeful! With many 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 back to their hotel ballroom where they attended a ministry night. They were able to share their experience with their peers and went to confession. All in all, it was an absolutely beautiful and rewarding experience.

    "March for Life is an amazing event for the young people of our Archdiocese, not only because it’s a trip to our nation’s capital, but because it’s a pilgrimage that allows students to see others like themselves who want to see the Lord at work in the world.  We march together with around one million people each year, we pray together, visit the Basilica, learn together in the rallies and museums, and we begin to feel like we’re really a part of something bigger than ourselves.  It’s an honor to attend.” - Carly Flynn(chaperone)
