St. John Paul II

"Human life is sacred and inviolable at every stage and in every situation; it is an indivisible good."

March For Life

As an integral part of its Catholic identity and mission, Father Ryan High School advocates for a consistent ethic of life from the moment of conception until natural death. As a tangible opportunity to advocate for pro-life issues, three bus-loads of Father Ryan students travel annually to Washington, D.C., each January on the anniversary of Roe V. Wade for the national March for Life. This opportunity is open to all students as a powerful way to be a voice for the voiceless.

In addition to marching to the Supreme Court during the March for Life, students also attend the Youth Rally and Mass for Life in conjunction with the Diocese of Nashville Catholic Youth Office as we join in worship with other Catholic youth from across the nation. Students also visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and various other sites in our nation’s capital.
