March For Life
On Friday, January 22nd, members of Christ the Savior traveled to Washington DC for the annual March For Life. The march is a pro-life rally protesting abortion, held in the nation's capital near the anniversary of the decision in the United States Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade.
Among the numerous Orthodox Christians who took part in the March were His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon; His Grace, Bishop Michael of New York and New Jersey; the OCA officers; faculty and students from Saint Tikhon’s Seminary, South Canaan, PA and Saint Vladimir’s Seminary, Yonkers, NY; and clergy and faithful of all ages from across the country, including a small contigent from Christ the Savior Mission in Berlin, MD.
