Every Life is a Treasure
On Saturday, October 19, we joined hundreds of Pro-Lifers at the annual NorthWest Families March for Life in Palatine. It began at St. Theresa Parish with song and inspirational speakers, including our own Pro-Life State Representative, Tom Morrison.
The Crusaders for Life youth group led the way with their drum line and cascade of yellow balloons as we marched carrying our ‘EVERY LIFE IS A TREASURE’ signs to the rally at Palatine Plaza. Once there, we sang and heard more speakers including gubernatorial candidate Jeanne Ives and the grandfather of the Pro-Life movement, 92 year old Joe Scheidler.
The Plaza is centered at a main intersection and during the busy Saturday morning traffic there were consistent honks and waves from supporters who drove by. We also heard the horn and saw our Residents waving their support from our own LSP bus. They were on their way to the Fall Festival at St. Isaac Jogues Parish.
During this month dedicated to Respecting Life, we pray that all of the world will realize that ‘Every Life is a Treasure’.
This March is a great way to let the public know that pro-life means respect for all human life.
Finally, we celebrated back at St. Theresa with FREE refreshments.
