Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump declared January 22, 2020, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day. In his address, the President called on Congress to protect and defend the dignity of human life, to care for women with unexpected pregnancies and to support adoption and foster care in a more meaningful way, so every child can have a loving home. The President stated: “Every person — the born and unborn, the poor, the downcast, the disabled, the infirm, and the elderly — has inherent value. Although each journey is different, no life is without worth or is inconsequential; the rights of all people must be defended. On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, our Nation proudly and strongly reaffirms our commitment to protect the precious gift of life at every stage, from conception to natural death.”
This proclamation comes as groups and individuals throughout the country begin their travels to the March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Friday, January 24th. This year, the March for Life will be marked by a history-making moment as President Trump becomes the first president in history to speak at the March for Life.
We ask that you join us in prayer for our Holy Apostles College & Seminary seminarians, students, alumni, faculty, and staff who will be led by our President-Rector, Fr. Peter Kucer, MSA, at the March for Life. They begin their travels from our Cromwell campus late this evening and will arrive in Washington, D.C., early Friday morning.
Please also remember in prayer all individuals who are traveling and attending the March for Life.
