ProLife Trip

Gen Life Trip

Every year around the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Archdiocese of St. Louis Office of Youth Ministry organizes a pilgrimage to Washington, D.C., called Generation Life.

The Generation Life Pilgrimage will participate in the annual March for Life to tell our government leaders and our nation that abortion must end. Generation Life will also give young people the opportunity to stand together in faith, to learn more about Pro-Life issues, to be fueled by dynamic programming including the Sacraments (Mass and Reconciliation), and to be empowered to live and proclaim the Gospel of life.
