The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana March Continued from page 1 participate in the march. She's the mother of six children, and a member at Good Shepherd Church in Evansville. "I've always believed in the pro-life issue. I'm definitely pro-life, because I have six kids, and I've always wanted to do something." She said she knew "basi- cally what it was about, but I was shocked at the num- bers. It's really overwhelm- ing to see the people who are there for this issue." The southwestern Indiana group participated in a special Mass at the Shrine of the Im- maculate Conception, which was concelebrated by 180 priests, bishops and cardinals. "Archbishop [Daniel] Buech- lein [of Indianapolis] said he had never seen this church so filled with pro-life supporters. People were everywhere dur- ing the Mass. They were in the aisles, and in the chapels."

C. Message photo by Mike Woolsey because "it has to start with the young people." After the march, as she talked with some of the teenagers, they told her that "they felt good about what they had done, and they were glad to have been participants." She added, "It was inspiring to see the kids speaking out on an issue like this." This was also the first year that Woolsey has attended the March for Life. He feared that there might be a "lot of chaos, but the kids were really super. It was the best bunch of kids." The National Park Service estimated the crowd at 60,000, but Woolsey noted that their estimate was taken at noon, and the march didn't start until 1:30 p.m. "We didn't even start moving until seven or eight minutes after two." From where his group was marching "you couldn't see the " )A Kristi Tieken and Amanda Tieken, Church, Washington, carry posters nual March for Life in Washington, D.C. -- Message front or the end," and he heard many participants say that this year's march was "a lot bigger than before."
