Eagles Brave Cold at 41st Annual March

Nearly 40 Chaminade Julienne students and chaperones braved the snow, ice and bitter cold temperatures to be among thousands of fellow pro-life supporters -- and several other groups from the Archdiocese of Cincinnati -- at the 41st annual March for Life in Washington, D.C.

Again this year, Eagles fittingly joined with a group of Patriots from Carroll High School to make the journey to our nation’s capital and share in the advocacy experience. But before departing Dayton, students were given a special blessing by Fr. Chris Worland and the parishioners of Ascension Church (pictured above).

Altogether approximately 70 high school students and chaperones attended the 8:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, Jan. 19 as the first activity of their journey together to be a "Voice for the Voiceless." The group returned safely at 3 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 23.
