Thorie Tembo’s WYD Update Days 4 and 5
Day 4- (18th January) this was an early start for all pilgrims as we headed to the Capital One Arena for the Youth Rally and Mass for Life. Our kangaroos were warmly welcomed by the American community. After celebrating mass with 20,000 youth of the Pro-Life Generation, we began the 46th annual March for Life with at least 1 million people as we made our way to the Supreme Court of the United States. The march commemorates the Roe V. Wade case which allowed abortion until birth in America.
Day 5- (19th January) today Georgetown University hosted the 20th annual Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life. This is the largest Pro-Life conference in America. Once again the Australian community was warmly welcomed as Archbishop Anthony Fisher addressed the Pro-Life Generation. We also had the opportunity of listening to various America speakers and ask questions to a QandA pannel. The conference ended with a Mass celebration in the beautiful Dahlgren Chapel.
