Slideshow: Walk for Life 2012
More than 200 Thomas Aquinas College students helped lead the way through the streets of San Francisco on January 21, 2012 — in remembrance of the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade — for the eighth annual Walk for Life West Coast. The students prayed, sang, and peacefully bore witness to the Culture of Life with some 50,000 walkers.
Roughly two-thirds of Thomas Aquinas students have attended the Walk every year since its founding in 2005, and over the years they have increasingly taken on leadership roles within the event.
“On behalf of the Church in Phoenix, I want to express my appreciation of the witness to Christ offered by the faculty, staff, and students of this exceptional institution, and to thank you for your love of learning and your desire to offer fitting worship to the Blessed Trinity.”
– Most Rev. Thomas J. Olmsted
Bishop of Phoenix
