On Monday, January 24, 2005, Christendom College joined the estimated 200,000+ pro-lifers at the 32nd March for Life in Washington, DC. The College cancelled classes for Monday and the Student Activities Council chartered 7 buses to transport all 375+ students, and numerous members of the faculty and staff to the March.
The annual March for Life is a peaceful demonstration marking the anniversary of the landmark and controversial Supreme Court decision of January 22, 1973, which proclaimed abortion to be a legal right of women. Thousands of pro-life Americans from all over the country gather on the Nation’s Capital to march for life down Constitution Avenue from the National Mall to the Supreme Court.
Christendom’s motto, “To restore all things in Christ,” is more than just a motto for the students. It is their mission and their way of life. Through the vigorous moral and academic education that they receive at Christendom, the students are well prepared to enter society and the workforce as “Soldiers for Christ,” dedicated to the restoration of all of Christendom.
