for Life brings together Alumni and Students
year, Christendom students and alumni join the thousands of
people at the March for Life. And after the day's marching,
many of these same students and alumni go to a nearby Irish
Pub, normally, The Irish Times in Washington, DC. It is a
great place to run into all kinds of people, and many alumni
that you don't normally see but once a year. If you've never
been to the "After March" party, you should give
it a go next year. You never know who you're gonna run into.
Plus, you can get aquainted with some of the current students.
