The Youth of Church of the Messiah Give Witness at the March for Life

January 25th, 2012 by sjl+

You may have noticed that many of the youth were not in church last Sunday.  That is because they were traveling to Washington, D.C., to participate in the 39th annual March for Life.  Five of our youth endured planes, trains, and automobiles in order to testify in our nation’s capitol that “All Life is Sacred.”  They participated in the “All Life is Sacred” Rally on Sunday night, before staging a “Million to One Die-In” in front of the White House on Monday morning  before praying at a Liturgy for the Pre-Born on the steps of the Supreme Court and then joined with more than THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND of their closest friends in order to protest legalized abortion in America. The youth then returned after midnight early on Tuesday morning.

Daniel Fowley, the youth pastor at the Pro-Cathedral Church of the Intercessor in Malverne, New York, has created THIS VIDEO.  It features at least three of the five youth as well as a chaperone here and there.

The Youth Group wishes to thank each and every member of Church of the Messiah who helped raise funds over the last year.  Everyone who ordered food in the gumbo and pasta lunch sales, the pancake breakfast, and the poinsettia sales helped us raise over $1,000 to offset the cost of the very expensive trip.  Find a youth this Sunday and ask them about their trip.
