March for Life


2017 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 27. Marquette’s pilgrimage will run from 1/26-28.

Trip cost is $200 per student which includes transportation, accommodations, the Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life at Georgetown University, 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.
