Wyoming Catholic sent 10 dozen students to Denver Life march

Wyoming Catholic College students traveled to Denver earlier this month and participated in the annual Denver March for Life. Over 120 students, including all of the freshmen – nearly 80% of the College’s student body – made the trip, "making a strong statement for life," along with WCC's President Dr. Kevin Roberts, according to a news release. The Wyoming Catholic contingent joined Archbishop Samuel Aquila and other local members of Colorado’s pro-life movement in a peaceful demonstration in support of those too innocent and defenseless to speak out for themselves: the unborn, the college statement read. Described by coordinators as “a dramatic show of joyful unity,” it was described as the largest in Denver's history with over 5,000 attendees. The College’s students were right in the thick of things, having been given the great honor of leading the march beside Archbishop Aquila. “As the Catholic college of the Rocky Mountain West,” Dr. Roberts said, “Wyoming Catholic is honored to lead the Denver March for Life. In this public witness, our students, faculty, and staff hope to spark even greater awareness of the plight of the unborn, as well as of the needs of expectant mothers. If anyone can affect our culture, our students can, with their limitless joy and zeal." Arrangements for the 10 dozen student's trip was made by Gary Michaud of Dr. Roberts office. *Feature Photo: WCC students marched last year in San Francisco.
