The Best Photos of the Historic Turnpike Mass of 2016!

By: ChurchPop As you may have heard, a Catholic pro-life student group going home after the March for Life got stuck on the highway due to heavy snows. With tons of time and not much to do, they did something incredible: they build an altar out of snow and had Mass on the side of […]
