.- Fifty young adults are walking 1,300 miles to declare the pro-life message that human life is sacred and must be protected from conception to natural death.
Three groups of young people, from the United States, Canada and Mexico, are participating in the Crusade for Life and left on their respective walks May 30.
The first group left from San Diego and will head to Sacramento. The second group headed from Minneapolis to Erie, PA. The third group started in Augusta, ME to Washington, DC.
"The 50 young adults who are participating are so passionate about the pro-life ministry and the Eucharist, as well as about the denial of Holy Communion, out of love, for those who do not fully embrace the Church's teachings,” said Emily Bissonnette, media director for Crusade for Life.
It is commitment like this, which reminds us that this is not a political endeavor or a ploy to campaign for certain candidates,” she added.
EWTN’s Life on the Rock will feature five-minute segments on the young “Crusaders” throughout the summer.
