March for Life Rally 

The March for Life in Washington, D.C. began as a small demonstration and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The misison of the March for Life is to provide all Americans with a place to testify to the beauty of life and the dignity of each human person. Both in January, on the anniversary of legalized abortion in the United States, and throughout the year, we bring together pro-life leaders and groups to organize, unite, and strategize around a common message, and to communicate this message to the government, the media and the nation in a way that is powerful and life affirming.

Summer Programs 

The Center for Ministry Development, founded in 1978,  promotes the development of ministry and catechesis with youth and families through leadership formation, service learning, and resources rooted in Catholic tradition and Scripture. The Center's programs and services are designed to assist Church leaders to understand and implement the teachings and pastoral plans of the Catholic Church.

2017 Summer Programs
