March for Life in Washington DC

March for Life

Steve, Aspen, Denver and Greeley traveled to Washington DC with a group from Saint Columbans Catholic Church to attend the 37th Annual March For Life. Here you can see Fr. Tom and the rest of the St. Columban's group marching, there were 32 in our group all together. We are the ones in the maroon stocking caps.

Steve, Aspen and Denver arrived at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception Washington DC at 6:30 am after almost 24 hours on a bus. They attended daily Mass there before heading off to see many famous sights around the Washington Mall including a trip up the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, World War II Memorial and a few hours in the Museum of American History. We all went to eat at Hard Rock Cafe on Thursday Night.

Friday morning we got up and went on a tour of the US Capitol Building. After that we line up in the March and March down the Mall up Capitol Hill and to the Supreme Court with close to 400,000 other people from all over the country. After the March for Life we all walked down to Union Station and ate supper. The bus then picked us up and we drove straight through back to Chillicothe at 3 PM Saturday afternoon where we had Mass with the Group.

  1. Way to go Aspen and Denver! Hope you had/ are having a wonderful time with your dad in DC. I used to march in right to life marches when I was your age and it's great that you're doing it. Praying for travel safety and can't wait to hear all about your trip.
