Archbishop Carlson: We are Generation Life!

Archbishop Carlson delivers a message to the Generation Life youth who gathered at the Cathedral Basilica on Saturday, January 23.

Archbishop Robert J. Carlson addressed the 1,000+ youth gathered at the Cathedral Basilica on Saturday, January 23rd for the Generation Life event held  in St. Louis. The event was held here because the Generation Life pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. was called off due to the severe snowstorm that impacted the Eastern United States.

Archbishop shared an inspirational message urging us to unite in defense of all life and to be faithful witnesses. He called on the youth to truly be Generation Life, united in prayer and action to bring an end to abortion.

Archbishop Carlson first offered the youth one question: “Are we united in a common cause to end abortion?” The church resoundingly echoed: “Yes!”
