Crossroads Pro-Life Walk Across America

I first heard about Crossroads from a young man who came and spoke at St. Joseph's Catholic Church. He shared with us about his experience, and the trails and joys of this journey. I share this story with you. Let us all keep the walkers in our prayers.

It's difficult to walk in the heat, but what keeps all of us going, I think, is knowing that the purpose of our pilgrimage is to witness to life," said Missourian Dennis Stoll, one of more than 40 young people who have spent much of the summer walking across the country for the pro-life cause. Each summer, college-age walkers spread the pro-life message as they pray at abortion clinics in cities and towns along their route, attend daily Mass, recite the rosary and pray for a change in the culture to bring an end to abortion. "Crossroads Pro-Life Walk Across America" sponsors three walks that take place simultaneously. The northern walk starts in Seattle and goes through Billings, Mont., Minneapolis and Cleveland, among other places. The central walk begins in San Francisco and some of the cities on the route are Salt Lake City, Kansas City, Kan., and Indianapolis. The southern walk skirts the bottom of the country, originating in Los Angeles, and stops include Phoenix, Dallas and Atlanta. All three walks were to merge Aug. 12 in Washington for a rally on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.
Their website is Thanks to The World IMHO for the origional link.

In Our Lord and Our Lady,
