Six Christian Brothers Academy students traveled to Washington, D.C. last Friday for the 2019 March for Life rally, joining fellow Lasallian schools for the annual event.
Nearly 300 total students from 12 Lasallian schools, some traveling from as far as Florida and Minnesota, joined the CBA group in D.C. They attended the March for Life event as a group, followed by a reception at St. John’s College High School in D.C.
“The March for Life was a great experience for us as CBA students, as it reinforced the strong conviction to Catholic beliefs and morals,” senior Alec Noe said. “The trip to D.C. also allowed the CBA community to form a meaningful connection with other Lasallian schools from across the country.”
At St. John’s, the group of five Lasallian high schools were able to eat dinner together, chat about the day’s events, and take part in a short prayer service.
“I thought it was amazing to see how this March is driven by love and not by hate, like so many others,” senior Matt Michelli said. “It was fun to get to meet the students from the other Lasallian schools and I would highly recommend this trip because it was truly a one-of-a-kind experience.”
The March for Life has been held in some capacity since 1974, making this the 46th annual edition of the event. It hopes to educate the public about abortion in a peaceful, public arena. The CBA students were joined by theology teacher Mr. Bob O’Connor.
