Students from the Diocese of Superior have participated in the Washington, D.C., March for Life every January for a number of years, traveling with a group from the Archdiocese of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
Given the increased participation in recent years, 2019 will be the Diocese of Superior’s first year organizing its own trip. They are hoping to get more people involved – with the March and pro-life initiatives upon returning – with new experiences, knowledge and passion.
Chris Hurtubise, associate director of Catholic Formation for the Diocese of Superior, shared, “I can honestly say this trip is a pilgrimage: Every day is filled with prayer, sacraments, talks and education about the beauty and dignity of all human life. Over the past few years, we’ve seen so much growth and transformation in the young people and chaperones that have attended.”
“We were hoping to fill one bus, but are now working on filling a second,” he said.
The trip will take place Jan. 15-20. The target audience is high school students, but adults are welcome to attend; ideally, more than one representative from a parish will come to encourage continued action after they return.
Trip cost of $455 includes the Students for Life of America conference, bus transportation, hotel, some meals, visits to Washington, D.C., landmarks and participation in the March for Life.
