Crossroads 2009: Walking Across the Country for LIfe

This weekend, at all the Masses at Sants Peter and Paul, we were visited by volunteers from “Crossroads,” an organization of young people who walk across the entire country in witness to the Culture of Life. (Crossroads volunteers also visited us in 2007--there is a picture on the sidebar of two of them with Father Malloy.)

They spoke to the parishioners about their mission. These two fine young people with Fr. Armand Oliveri are Josh Spears, a graduate of St. Francis of Steubenville, and Bridget Kaehler, who attends Wyoming Catholic College:

Starting tomorrow, May 25, Josh and Bridget will be part of a group of 8-12 people marching the "central" route (from San Francisco to DC). They will arrive in Washington DC on August 13 or 14, in time for a big pro-life rally at the Capitol on August 15. We hope Josh and Bridget will send us pictures and stories from their trek across the USA--we'll post them here.

Today is the feast of Mary Help of Christians, Patroness of the Salesians. May Mary Help of Christians guide their steps!
