Slideshow: Walk for Life 2012
More than 200 Thomas Aquinas College students helped lead the way through the streets of San Francisco on January 21, 2012 — in remembrance of the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade — for the eighth annual Walk for Life West Coast. The students prayed, sang, and peacefully bore witness to the Culture of Life with some 50,000 walkers.
Roughly two-thirds of Thomas Aquinas students have attended the Walk every year since its founding in 2005, and over the years they have increasingly taken on leadership roles within the event.
“This is truly a Catholic center of learning because it reverberates with the ecclesial life of faith, a faith which unfolds the richness of reason and is given fervent expression liturgically, sacramentally, and through prayer, acts of charity, and a passion for justice.”
