March for Life


2016 March for Life

Since 1974, hundreds of thousands have gathered in Washington, D.C., to march for the rights of the unborn and bring an end to abortion. Once again this year, Marquette is sending a delegation.

Students will leave for Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, January 20 after classes and return to campus on the morning of Sunday, January 24.

Trip cost is $180, which includes transportation, accommodations, conferences (Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life at Georgetown University and/or the Students for Life Conference), and some meals.

This journey is a pilgrimage designed to help students grow in relationship with God and one another while engaging realities surrounding the dignity of the human person. This pilgrimage can be a wonderful time to explore doubts, questions, and ways to live as women and men for others.
