The annual Pro-Life Walk was held on Sunday, Jan. 26. Members from Our Lady Queen of All Saints, Sacred Heart of Jesus, and St. Joseph Catholic Churches were present, as well as people from other churches in the area and people who support the pro-life cause.
Cody Reed, who is the Youth Director for the Louisiana Right to Life and coordinator for Camp Joshua, was the guest speaker.
As usual, the route went from the OLQAS parking lot to Sacred Heart Church, a distance of 1.8 miles.
