Lasallians were among the thousands who braved the frigid temperatures in Washington, D.C., for March for Life on January 22. For the second year, several Lasallian groups united to march together, including Central Catholic High School, Pittsburgh, PA; Christian Brothers College High School, St. Louis, MO; Christian Brothers High School, Memphis, TN; and Mullen High School, Denver, CO.
“I think it was so amazing to meet up with other Lasallian schools during the March for Life,” said Claire Wright, a sophomore at Mullen High School. “Lasallians have such a unique and special way to approach life, and it is a great opportunity to meet with people who have a common belief.”
Brother Mark Englemeyer, a postulant who serves as a teacher, campus minister, and moderator of the group “Brothers for Life” at Christian Brothers High School in Memphis, TN, accompanied students to the March. “I know that all Lasallian schools in their nature are Pro-Life, but it was great to experience the enthusiasm and energy of other Lasallians from all over the United States,” he said.
Many other Lasallians were also in attendance and marched with their respective parish, diocese, or archdiocese, including St. Patrick High School, Chicago, IL, Montini Catholic High School, Lombard, IL and Saint Paul’s School, Covington, LA.
