This year’s March for Life recognizes the 45th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the US. Please click here to see Metropolitan Tikhon’s address for the Sanctity of Life Sunday (Jan. 21). Metropolitan Tikhon offered the opening prayer this year!
St. Tikhon’s Seminary was well-represented during the March. Archbishop Michael, Seminary Rector, and Archpriest Steven Voytovich, Seminary Dean, were among those who stood behind His Beatitude as he offered the opening prayer. Fr. Ignatius Gauvain, Director of Student Life, came with many seminarians to participate in the march. Hieromonk Herman (Majkrzak) led the choir during the prayer service led by His Beatitude. Later, he led those gathered, including many from St. Vladimir’s Seminary, in singing while the Orthodox group participated in the March.
The March for Life is one time during the year when our Orthodox Christian community comes together to literally “walk the walk” in witnessing the sanctity of human life!
