Kansas City Rally

Posted by Francis Slobodnik (June 12, 2012 at 12:09 pm)

55 dedicated souls showed up for the rally that took place at the Kansas District Court House in Kansas City, KS. The rally was opened by a prayer by Father Hermann pastor of Old St. Patrick’s in Kansas City, MO.

A young man with an excellent voice led the crowd in God Bless America. Signs and buttons were distributed. Some even brought their own signs. A half dozen participants came forward to address the crowd.

The crowd, while smaller than hoped for, nevertheless was enthusiastic and are in it for the long haul. The point was made that we didn’t get here overnight, and we won’t return America to her former moral greatness overnight either. It is going to take perseverance.

The rally closed as it opened, with a prayer.

Jefferson City, MO, the “Show Me” State, Stands Up!

It was an exciting day at the Missouri Capitol!  Bishop John Gaydos led the rally of 374 supporters of religious freedom with prayer and a strong message encouraging our activism, stating, “Religious freedom is not merely about our ability to attend church on Sunday.  It is impossible to exercise that religious freedom and at the same time compromise the faith that inspires us to action.”  

It was a beautiful Missouri day with participants wearing red as they listened to 8 compelling speakers spread truth to concerned Missouri residents on the capitol lawn. Mike Hoey, Executive Director of the Missouri Catholic Conference, emceed the event with 40 Days for Life -Columbia as the coordinators.

We thank Senator Mike Kehoe for attending, as well as all who were involved in the rally and especially to the crowd in RED! It is clear to see that we will not go down without a fight!
