We are very saddened by the death of Joe Scheidler who passed away on Monday. Known as the "godfather of pro-life activism," Joe was a stalwart leader of the pro-life movement and a shining example of a pro-life Catholic man.

Dedicated to this fight for life, even at the age of 93, he was scheduled to be our keynote speaker.

Please join us as we pay tribute to Joe at our Walk for Life on Saturday. May his life and legacy inspire us in our efforts to defend the unborn!

In many ways, this Walk will be a pilgrimage. Our route begins at the Federal Courthouse where we will pray that the Roe V. Wade decision that has resulted in 60 million deaths to be overturned. While walking, we will pass the offices of Rockford politicians who voted to legalize abortion for all nine months including partial-birth abortion in our state. We will also pass the buildings that house Winnebago county government offices, the jail, and courts....and we pass by a wonderful Church - St. Marys Oratory.

A lot to pray for on this walk for CHRIST & Life.
