Life Day Pro-Life Pilgrimage and Rally
This year the Respect Life Office of the Kansas City diocese is proud to support the Knights of Columbus, Missouri Right to Life Pony Express Chapter, St. Francis Xavier Church, and Bishop LeBlond High School as we celebrate the "Life Day Pro-Life Pilgrimage & Rally", Sunday October 13 in St. Joseph. 

The day will start at 2:00 p.m. with two concurrent activities - a pilgrimage from St. Francis Xavier Church and a silent prayer vigil at Bishop LeBlond High School.  The pilgrimage will travel to Bishop LeBlond H.S. , arriving between 3:00-3:30 p.m., at which time the Pro-Life Rally will begin with everyone in the football stadium.  The theme of the rally will be a prayerful afternoon family event with the Knights of Columbus honor guard, an invocation, the singing of a few patriotic and religious songs by Benedictine College choir, and a series of brief pro-life talks.
