March for Life

Our seminarians took a train to Washington D.C. for the March for Life today.  Following last night's Mass for Life at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, we settled into our hotel at the foot of Capitol Hill. This morning began with Mass celebrated by Cardinal Se√°n P. O'Malley at the Capuchin shrine of the Sacred heart.  Almost 1,000 pilgrims from Boston and Fall River were there.  Here's a picture of the seminarians:

Then we took part in the March, which ended at the Supreme Court.  It was one of the largest crowds I have seen and everyone was energized by the appearance of Vice-President Pence at the pre-March rally.
