MARCHING FOR LIFE
The Sister students from Assumption College for Sisters (ACS) along with Morris Catholic students and faculty traveled on January 19th to Washington DC from St. Mary’s Church, Denville sponsored by The Knights of Columbus Councils 514 and 3359. The group with many others from around the nation spent Friday afternoon marching to fight for an end to legalized abortion in the United States. The March started at the National Mall with a rally of speeches, marched down Constitution Avenue passed the U.S. Capitol building and ended at the Supreme Court.
Growing out of a firm belief in the dignity of each person, administration, faculty, and students at ACS strive to see the face of Jesus in all. The March for Life is a way to embrace unborn babies in the womb by giving them a voice. The students want to raise awareness that God is pro-life and Assumption College supports all stages of life. The students of Assumption College for Sisters also have attended and prayed in front of an abortion clinic supporting 40 Days for Life which is an international group that campaigns against abortion primarily in the United States. ACS students attend the 40 Days for Life campaigns managed Morris County Right to Life.
