2009 March for Life
Nearly 400 Catholic University students joined the March for Life in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, Jan. 22, 2009. Very Rev. David M. O'Connell, C.M., university president, offered a prayer before the group set out amid frigid temperatures. Father O'Connell and Rev. Robert Schlageter, O.M.F. Conv., better known on campus as Father Bob, led the group on the walk from the Washington Monument to the steps of the U.S. Capitol. Some students sported homemade T-shirts and posters for the march.
