Along with nearly 100 other people from the archdiocese, I took an early bus to Washington
, D.C., the weekend before last for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, one of the seminal civil rights events of the 20th century.
Also making the journey were other parishioners from the vicariate, along with other priests including Father Freddy Washington, C.S.Sp., the new administrator of St. Mark the Evangelist, as well as other priests, deacons and religious.
Msgr. Kevin Sullivan, executive director of archdiocesan Catholic Charities, played a leadership role as the archdiocesan group moved through the streets and Metro system of Washington, D.C., to the National Mall where the program was held.
"As we learned about (the march), it seemed to us that it's kind of the broader mission of Catholic Charities to make the society that we live in a little more just," Msgr.
