May 13, 2010 - For the fifth year, thousands of people from the tri-state area will gather Sunday, June 6th, 2010 for the annual Cross the Bridge for Life across the Purple People Bridge in celebration of the sanctity of human life, from conception to natural death. A coalition of over 20 area pro-life organizations presents this positive event for the community.
Cross the Bridge for Life will take place Sunday, June 6th from 2:00-4:00 p.m. All participants first meet at the World Peace Bell Center at 421 Monmouth St. in Newport, KY, by Newport On-the-Levee.
The event will begin with a brief program conducted by Honorary Event Chairman, Brian Patrick, host of the Son Rise Morning Show, Sacred Heart Radio/EWTN 740AM. Diocese of Covington Bishop Roger Foys will offer the welcoming prayer; Rev. Arnold Culbreath, Urban Director, Protecting Black Life, brief remarks; and Archdiocese of Cincinnati Archbishop Dennis Schnurr will offer the event blessing.
JTM Food Group owners Tony & Barb Maas and their daughter Michelle will kick off the event by ringing the World Peace Bell. Bagpipers from the Ancient Order of Hibernians will once again lead walkers across the bridge.
The event will end back at the World Peace Bell with a picnic by JTM Food Group, and music featuring The Lee Roessler Band (www.leeroesslerband.com).
