.- Christendom College will close Friday, January 22 and transport the entire student body to participate in the 2010 March for Life in Washington, D.C.

“This college recognizes our responsibility to the unborn and enables the entire College community to participate each year in one of the most important witnesses to the value of human life,” said student Cyrus Artz, president of Students for Life.

Christendom College cancels its classes each year on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and travels to Washington D.C. Last year, they led the March for Life, carrying the lead banners and flags in the front of the procession.

“This closing coupled with the enthusiasm of our students shows Christendom's unwavering commitment to life,” said Jesse Dorman, Dean of Student Life. “All our students are given the opportunity and the means to give public witness to the importance of life at our nation's capital.”

The 2010 theme for March for Life is “Stand Up Now! Unite for the Life Principles – No Exception! No compromise.”

Sophomore Angela Swagler calls it an honor to be able to witness against “the grave evil of abortion.”

“It's so wonderful that at Christendom College, we really are Catholics first,” she continued. “It's how it should be. We cannot just let our faith be stated, rather, it has to be genuine and to be genuine, we need to actively stand for what we believe.”
