From Coast to Coast
Students and members of the Legion of Christ and Regnum Christi “walk” and “march” for the unborn

Regnum Christi members, Legionaries of Christ and students from our schools throughout the US took to the streets this past week to mark an infamous anniversary – the 41st year since the US Supreme Court legalized abortion with the Roe versus Wade decision.

They traveled from around the country to Washington DC for the annual March for Life.  High school students from Pinecrest Academy in Cumming, Georgia, and Everest Collegiate High School in Clarkston, Michigan, were among some of the thousands involved in the annual event.

proudly ran the following advance article about the participation of their school:

“Almost 70 Pinecrest High School students and friends from St. John Bosco Academy, along with many generous chaperons, departed very early Monday morning to travel to Washington, DC, for the national March for Life.  Despite snow and very frigid temperatures, our students are enjoying this special pilgrimage, and visited Arlington National Cemetery and other historic landmarks in our nation´s capitol today.  Please keep all of these students in your prayers as they courageously and outwardly show their support and love for LIFE!”

On the day of the March for Life, January 22, 2014, Everest ran a photo of the Immaculate Conception Program students, who were among those participating from the school, and a paragraph in their school blog:

were part of the west coast Walk for Life. Br. Antonio Lemos LC contributed the following details:

On January 25, 2014, a group of Legionaries, Regnum Christi members and families from the Conquest Club of San Jose area attended the annual Walk for Life in San Francisco. There were more than 60,000 people participating in the 2-mile long walk. The goal of the walk is to celebrate life and to create the awareness that abortion harms women, men, and children; it divides families and society.

The walk started with a Rally in the Civic Center of San Francisco, where several prominent prolife speakers talked. Before joining the Rally, the Legionaries and Conquest Club families celebrated Mass in Canyon Heights Academy, the Legionary school in San Jose, California. During the homily, Fr Joshua West LC talked about the sacredness of human life and invited everyone to live the Gospel of Life.

The walk started at the Civic Center and went all the way through Market Street until Justin Herman Plaza. Among the participants were children, families, seniors, teenagers, Catholic school students, parishes, priests and nuns from all over the west coast.

At the end of the walk, Brian Williams, Regnum Christi member from Los Angeles,

shared that “more than anything else after this Walk for Life, I feel pride and excitement.  It is one thing to hold strong beliefs and another to go out and demonstrate them.  I feel more alive. The faith that has so much meaning for me now has a proper expression with this experience.”
