Start Date

To stand for the sanctity of human life, St. Vladimir’s Seminary will participate in a virtual March for Life January 28 with the Orthodox Church in America (OCA). 

Virtual March for Life

Saint Vladimir’s and sister seminary St. Tikhon’s join His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon each year at the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. This year, due to pandemic, the seminaries will instead join the OCA at an online rally for the lives of the unborn. 

His Beatitude will lead a prayer service and deliver a message at St. Vladimir’s Three Hierarchs Chapel to begin the virtual march. That will be followed by a talk from Dr. Ana Iltis, professor and director of the Center for Bioethics, Health and Society at Wake Forest University and professor of philosophy at St. Vladimir's Seminary. Three more speakers will then offer reflections.

The event will be hosted by St. Vladimir’s Alumnus Fr. Thomas Soroka starting at 7:30 p.m. EST. The livestream will be available at as well as the OCA Facebook and YouTube pages.
