University president, Rev. John Jenkins, C.S.C., walks with Notre Dame students during the 2014 March for Life in Washington, D.C.

More than 600 University of Notre Dame students, faculty, staff and alumni were among the participants in the march, which this year observes the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion.

Before the march, Father Jenkins presided at a Mass for the Notre Dame marchers at 10 a.m. in St. Agnes Church in Arlington, Va.

Simultaneous with the beginning of the Washington march and in solidarity with the marchers, the Notre Dame Alumni Association sponsored a “Sanctity of Life” prayer service on campus at 1 p.m. Wednesday (Jan. 22) in the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes.
