Slideshow: Students Lead the Way at Walk for Life 2019

Posted: January 28, 2019

After the close of classes on Friday, some 230 Thomas Aquinas College students departed for San Francisco and the 15th annual Walk for Life West Coast. They arrived late in the night at North Beach’s Saints Peter and Paul Church in San Francisco, where the Salesian fathers graciously offered them places to sleep. The next morning, they attended Mass and then headed over to the Civic Center Plaza for the Walk.

At the request of the Walk’s organizers, the College’s students once again took on volunteer positions, directing traffic and crowds, as they helped lead the way through the streets of San Francisco. Clad in their red sweatshirts, they all prayed, sang, and peacefully called for an end to abortion alongside more than 50,000 fellow walkers. When they lined up to pose for a group photo at the Walk’s end,  they were met by their peers from Wyoming Catholic College, whom they warmly greeted with chants of “WCC! WCC!” (See video, below.)

Finally, on Sunday morning, the students made the 375-mile trip back to campus, tired, but grateful for the opportunity to bear witness to the Culture of Life.
