University of Mary Leads March for Life

 
Hundreds of thousands of people gathered in Washington, D.C. today for the March for Life. University of Mary students had the special opportunity to lead the anti-abortion march. 
 
University of Mary President Monsignor James Shea described the event.  “Carrying the banner at the front of the March for Life was a tremendous opportunity for them in their young lives to stand up for what they believe in, for their commitments to come to the forefront. And of course there were hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people who were present at the march. All of them standing up for life, and it was just a very beautiful, beautiful thing to see.”
 
One of their own, Katrina Gallic, was selected to speak at the event. She even received an invitation to meet Vice President Mike Pence before the event. But was unable to attend because of the long drive from Bismarck. According to UMary’s President, Monsignor Shea, her speech did not disappoint. 
 
“We were so honored to have Katrina speak and represent all the young people in the United States of America today, and that was a real blessing. It was a blessing for her, it was a blessing for the University of Mary, it was a blessing for North Dakota as well. And she spoke beautifully. The conviction behind what she said, the way that she shared was just amazing,” said Monsignor Shea.
 
It wasn’t a small group either. Around 600 students, staff, and friends from UMary attended the march.
