John I. Jenkins.

In a letter to faculty, students and alumni, Holy Cross Fr. John I. Jenkins, president of the University of Notre Dame, announced the formation of the Task Force on Supporting the Choice for Life to recommend ways that the university can support the sanctity of life, and he pledged to lead a Mass for life in Washington Jan. 22, to coincide with the annual March for Life in Washington. Jenkins faced criticism last spring from Catholic bishops and antiabortion activists after inviting President Obama to deliver Notre Dame's commencement address and receive an honorary degree.
