On Friday, Jan. 19, Central Catholic joined with Oakland Catholic in participation in the 45th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. 

The theme of the 2018 March was "Love Saves Lives."  It was in that spirit that nearly 50 students and several chaperones journeyed to our nation’s capital and were amongst the tens of thousands gathered together to demonstrate their belief in the sanctity of life, to educate themselves and their peers in current events shaping life issues, and to protest the evils of abortion. 

The march— which leads from the National Mall to the steps of the of the Supreme Court— is made by a Pro-Life crowd every January, near the anniversary of the Supreme Court's tragic 1973 decision legalizing abortion (Roe vs Wade).  

Mr. Matthew Sczweck, a social studies teacher and chaperone, summarized the event by saying, "This years March for Life was a wonderful opportunity not only for our students to bear witness to human life but also to experience the strength of the Pro-life movement."
