(approximately 7 hours and 400 miles) for the 2016 Annual March for Life this past January 22nd, which marks the anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision. Our Lady of the Angels Province friar, Br. Nick Romeo, OFM Conv. (Religion Teacher and Campus Minister), Mr. Morcelle, and Mr. Reichenberg and 32 SFHS students joined a contingent of over 250 people from the Diocese of Buffalo. While in Washington D.C. they were also able to visit the U.S. Capitol, the Holocaust Museum, the Library of Congress, and the Lincoln Memorial. The group participated in the Youth Rally and Mass for Life before an early departure home to avoid the blizzard approaching the D.C. area.
