DENVER, CO – Concluding a one week pro-life tour of colleges and universities in the West and Midwest, Crossroads’ Campus Director, Mark Thomason, and former Crossroads’ walker Tom Thomason will participate in the Knights of Columbus St. Patrick’s Day Festivities in Denver, Colorado on Saturday, March 12, 2005.

The Thomasons will be joining the Knights of Columbus Council 539 in Denver’s Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade and will be driving one of the Crossroads Pro-Life vans that volunteers have used to span the country in support of the unborn.

After the parade, they will present at the Council’s St. Patrick’s day festivities in the Council Hall.

During both events, both Mark and Tom Thomason will be wearing Crossroads’ distinctive “Pro-Life” t-shirt and will be distributing free Pro-Life stickers and information to everyone.

“Working for an end to abortion and helping build a Culture of Life is the best way to honor a saint whose life was dedicated to building a culture which respected human life to his country. As an Irish person, I’m proud of my Catholic heritage, and want to encourage all Catholics to work and pray for an end to abortion,” Mark Thomason stated.

“The Knights of Columbus have always been very supportive of Crossroads,” Thomason added, “I am grateful that they have decided to incorporate a pro-life message into their St. Patrick’s Day festivities.”

Crossroads is a national grassroots pro-life organization which organizes annual cross-country pro-life pilgrimages each summer. If you would like more information about Crossroads, please visit or call (800)353-8817.
