Notre Dame’s Father Jenkins heads to March for Life

January 22, 2010

Eight months after the University of Notre Dame drew criticism from over 70 bishops for awarding an honorary degree to President Barack Obama, Father John Jenkins has traveled to Washington for the March for Life for the first time since he became university president.

“We’re very glad to have Father Jenkins and faculty coming,” said pro-life student leader Mary Daly, who opposed the decision to President Obama an honorary degree. “This is something we’ve been working to get for a several years now.”
