OneLIfeLA drew 10,000+ people joyfully celebrating the value of all human life. Signs representing our sacred call to care for the hungry, the elderly, the sick, the unborn, the physically, and mentally challenged set the positive tone for the day.

Among the walkers were at least 40 from St. Kateri many of whom traveled together on metrolink.

Their bright red and white St. Kateri t-shirts triggered questions from fellow passengers wanting to know who the group was and where they were headed. Answers sparked some great opportunities for friendly evangelization. Look for this wonderful event to happen again next year.

Saint Kateri will be bringing a rendition of "The Living Stations of the Cross" for lent this year, 2015. The Drama Ministry of Saint Kateri is seeking interested people (ages 18 and above) to play characters and crowd in this modest comtemporary reflective presentation. No acting experience is necessary, only the desire to serve and be a part of this event that brings the heart and love of Jesus to those witnessing this spiritual pilgrimage of prayer. Join us and encounter a new experience on Saturday, January 17 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Please contact Mel of Greg Fong, Drama Ministry, at
