Newman Guide College Presidents Attend March for Life
Over at the National Catholic Register, Kelly Salomon, director of Newman Guide programs, reports on the witness of many of the presidents of Newman Guide colleges attending the upcoming March for Life:
Several Catholic college leaders attend the March for Life in Washington, D.C., each January, setting an important example for their students and for Catholics who are grateful for their public witness.
“Abortion is the civil rights issue of the day,” explained Stephen Minnis, president of Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas, in response to why he participates in the March for Life. “I march as a witness to my belief in the dignity of human life and to find ways to end abortion in my lifetime.”
“I also want to demonstrate to our students that I am with them in this important issue and that the person chosen to lead their college also believes strongly in the same things they do with regard to the protection of innocent life,” Minnis continued.
