WASHINGTON — The 14th annual Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life, the nation’s largest student-run pro-life conference, was held Jan. 26 at Georgetown University, the day after the March for Life.
With 695 registrants, it was the largest conference to date. The conference, which is always held at Georgetown, is named in memory of the late Cardinal John O’Connor of New York, whose pro-life ministry was a central focus throughout his 16 years of service as the archbishop of New York City.
Simultaneously, on the other side of Washington, Students for Life of America (SFLA) was hosting its national conference. The focus of the two conferences was different but complementary.
