FRONT ROYAL, Virginia, JAN. 13, 2010 ( Christendom College announced that it will cancel classes on Jan. 22, closing so that all students and staff can attend the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C.

A press release from the college reported today that buses will be chartered to bring the entire student body to the nation’s capital for the march, which commemorates the 1973 decision that legalized abortion in the United States.

Cyrus Artz, president of Students for Life, affirmed, «This college recognizes our responsibility to the unborn and enables the entire college community to participate each year in one of the most important witnesses to the value of human life.»

Jesse Dorman, dean of Student Life, noted that the college’s closing, as well as the «enthusiasm of our students» shows an «unwavering commitment to life.»

«All our students are given the opportunity and the means to give public witness to the importance of life at our nation’s capital,» Dorman said.

Angela Swagler, a sophomore, affirmed, «We cannot just let our faith be stated, rather, it has to be genuine and to be genuine, we need to actively stand for what we believe.»

The theme of this year’s march is: «Stand Up Now! Unite for the Life Principles — No Exception! No Compromise!»
