Join the March
Calling all Belmont Abbey College faculty, staff and students! Join our Campus Ministry team and President Thierfelder at this year’s March for Life in Washington D.C.
Led by Patrick Ford, we’ll be chartering buses up to Washington D.C. the afternoon of January 21. We’ll get in a bit late but will stay the night at the Hampton Inn in Alexandria. Next morning we’ll have a complimentary breakfast and head out for the North Carolina Mass at the National Shrine (11:30) and then on to the March. We’ll leave Washington D.C. after the event and arrive back on campus around midnight.
“This ties right back to our Benedictine tradition of welcoming everyone ‘in Persona Christi.’ These babies are created in the image and likeness of God. We have a duty to love them. The march is one way of showing we believe there is something wrong that needs to change.” – President Bill Thierfelder
Make Your Statement
Our president has made his statement, you can make yours. We will (God willing!) be meeting up with our friends at the Cardinal Newman Society at the March. They’re producing a video of the event for national release and they’ll want to hear from you! Why are you joining the March for Life? Why is it important to you? Make your statement!
Thanks to our Donors
Through generous donations made to Belmont Abbey College we’ve been able to raise thousands of dollars to bring this opportunity to our students at a very reasonable cost of only $15 per student. This includes the bus, hotel, and some food during the day of the march. Thanks to our donors for making this possible.
