Nice Encouragement in St. Gall Church Bulletin

by | Jan 11, 2020 | 2020 Walk for Life, Blog, Look Who's Coming!

This nice message was in the parish bulletin of St. Gall Church, in Garnerville, NV, Diocese of Reno (at last six Churches in Reno are sending buses!):

IF YOU’VE NEVER ATTENDED THE WALK FOR LIFE, CONSIDER DOING SO…IT’S A GREAT EXPERIENCE!

The walk is on January 25th.

“When I was a seminarian in 2005, I attended the first annual Walk for Life West Coast rally. Wow, what an intense experience that was. There were about 7000 of us, but there were also about 1000 counter-rally people. The counter-rally people were extremely loud and obnoxious, screaming vulgarities and even spitting on us. Crazy. I have attended many rallies since then and now they are very peaceful and calm, perhaps because we now number around 50,000. I think the young people inspire me the most, especially the young families pushing their strollers. There is so much joy in the group, it is quite contagious. I highly recommend people attend this uplifting event.” – Fr Mark Hanifan.

They also had this message:

“Tracy and I and the family have attended the Walk for Life for many years. For me, it is like a mini pilgrimage. For our family, it is a booster shot for our pro-life Catholic values. One gets to walk with people of all ages, but surprisingly with many young college-aged students representing many of the major colleges and universities on the west coast. Each year, we put it on our calendar. We very much look forward to the Walk!” – Dr. Keith Shonnard
