Jericho March

Judy Beaudry of St. Michael in St. Michael and president of the Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women's Northwest deanery holds up a pro-life message at the Jericho March in front of Planned Parenthood in St. Paul March 24. She joined six other ACCW members plus about 20 other pro-life advocates for the event, organized by Pro-Life Action Ministries. It started the previous day and runs through Palm Sunday March 29. Every day at 3 p.m., a group gathers outside of Planned Parenthood to pray and march all the way around the building. On the final day, like in the Old Testament story in which Joshua marched around the walls of Jericho, the group will gather and march one last time, then blow special horns made from ram's horns, call the shofar. This is the third year of the event, which took place at Planned Parenthood the first year and at an abortion facility in downtown Minneapolis the second. "This is important," said Beaudry. "It's human life that we are here to pray for. God gave this gift to us. We can't be throwing it away [through abortion]." Dave Hrbacek/The Catholic Spirit
