March for Life

2020 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.

The March for Life, one of the highlights of the pilgrimage, will take place on Friday, January 24. Marquette’s pilgrimage will run from 1/23-25.

Trip cost is $200 and includes air transportation, accommodations, a major 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.
