The “Crusade for Life Walk” organized by the Knights of Columbus (Our Lady of Grace Council) in October attracted hundreds of people from The Queensway-Lakeshore area of Etobicoke.
Under sunlit skies, the marchers prayed and sand their way, for ten kilometers, visiting five Catholic churches en route.
Walk Chairman, Frank Larkin, was obviously pleased by the success of the Walk, a first of its kind in the Etobicoke region. He says both young and elderly entered into the spirit of this peaceful and prayerful demonstration of support for the unborn and most people completed ten kilometers. Many who were unable to walk accompanied the parade in their cars. Many more supported the endeavour by signing a petition, which was available at all the parishes along the route. This petition will be sent to Premier Peterson and other prominent politicians in the near future.
Laura McArthur of “The Right to Life” organization gave a short talk upon completion of the Walk, in which she commended the participants of the Knights of Columbus for their efforts in the ongoing fight for Justice for the unborn.
