March for Life in DC

More than 150 youth and young adults loaded onto 3 buses and made the 15 hour drive to Washington, D.C. to stand up and defend the rights of the weakest members of our society—the unborn. 

The ‘Crusaders for Life’ with their signature yellow balloons and bright hoodies staged themselves at the beginning of the March and cheered and sang for the more than the half-million marchers before taking up the rear and heading to the front of the Supreme Court where they knelt and prayed for the protection of the unborn.

Fr. Nathan Caswell led the group and was assisted by Fr. Jim Isaacson, Fr. Joshua Caswell, and Brother Matthew Schuster. The group departed on February 21 and returned on February 23.

The ‘Crusaders for Life’ originally involved youth from Saint John Cantius Church and Saint Peter’s Church (Volo), but has expanded to other cities like Detroit. The Crusaders have become known for spirited and joyful enthusiasm and signature yellow balloons which have become a international symbol of the joy of the pro-life movement.
