Posted Jan 21st, 2018 by Julian Johnson  Category: Other


Four Lourdes University students will travel with Sister Barbara Vano, OSF, Lourdes University Director of Campus Ministry and Service Learning, to participate in the 2018 March for Life in Washington, D.C.. The Lourdes group will depart from the Campus Ministry House on Convent Blvd. in Sylvania to meet up with their peers at St. Thomas More Parish in Bowling Green. From there, the group will travel by bus as part of the College and Young Adult March for Life Trip sponsored by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Toledo.

Lourdes University students traveling with Sister Barbara Vano are:

· Senior and social work major Chelsea Brown of Blissfield, MI

· Freshman and biology major Haley Dechant of Avon, OH

· Freshman and nursing major Katherine Garver of Maumee, OH

· Freshman and theological studies major Michelle Konarzewski of Davisburg, MI

The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began in the early 1970s as a small demonstration and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. This year’s March for Life takes place on Friday, January 19. Prior to the march, the group will attend a Mass at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception with Bishop Daniel E. Thomas of the Diocese of Toledo and Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. In addition, the students will tour and spend two nights in the nation’s capital and have the opportunity to meet with Congressman Bob Latta.

“This is the seventh year that Lourdes students have participated in the March for Life. The trip allows our students the opportunity to attest to the beauty and dignity of every human life. March for Life allows young adults and college students from across the U.S. to communicate their message in a way that is both powerful and life affirming,” says Sr. Barbara Vano.
