Generation Life In STL

We don’t have to go to DC to be witnesses.

Are we upset we can’t make it to Washington DC this year to attend the March For Life? Absolutely! After all, it’s an extremely important event for our nation and our cause, and we’re glad to be a part of it when we can.

However, we want to make this point very clear: our inability to go to Washington DC will not stop us from being witnesses to the gospel of life!

We don’t always understand God’s will, but we are called to go wherever He leads us. This year, He’s leading us to our own back yard: St. Louis. Although our leaders in Washington DC can benefit from hearing the young and enthusiastic voices Generation Life, there are many people in our own city who can benefit as well.

Will you take a stand and be a leader in the pro-life movement here in St. Louis? Come join us for Generation Life in STL.

Get Your Pro-Life Scarf and Unite With Us at the March For Life!

All Are Welcome To Participate

This year, close to 2500 youth, chaperones, youth leaders, and young adults from the Archdiocese of St. Louis will attend the Generation Life pilgrimage in Washington DC. While there, they will speak for the voiceless by participating in the annual March For Life. Everyone present at the march will notice these "Gen Lifers" because of their iconic Pro-Life Scarves, which will be provided to all participants by the Office of Youth Ministry.

Great news! You don't have to be a "Gen Lifer" to unite with them at the march. Because so many people from the greater Archdiocese attend this pilgrimage, outside of Generation Life, anyone from the Archdiocese is welcome to participate by purchasing their very own Pro-Life scarf.

How To Get Your Scarf

For only $12, you can have your very own soccer style Archdiocesesan Pro-Life scarf! To order, download the attached PDF and submit it before November 30th. An image of the scarf is provided above. The procedes from your purchase will go towards offsetting the cost of the Generation Life pilgrimage.

Please submit your order form and payment to the following address:
