Youth Events


Join us on a pilgrimage for life.

Every January, a caravan of buses filled with youth, travels from Kansas City to Washington D.C., to March for Life. It's a pretty amazing experience, and certainly something you won't forget!  Stand-up for a most worthy cause, create new friendships, and see some of the incredible sights that Washington D.C. has to offer.

Who is this trip for?

This trip is high school students, and young people under the age of 21, along with their chaperones. Most of the time, students come as a group from their school or parish. If you are in a rural area, and there isn't a group forming from your school or parish, there is a solution!  As long as you have at least one youth and one chaperone, you can join the Rural Youth Group, coordinated by Angie. Just get in touch with her at for more information, on how to make this happen.

If you don't fall into this group, there is a Young Adult Group (21 and older) that will also be making a pilgrimage as well.  For more information on the Young Adult MFL Pilgrimage, contact Emily Lopez at or 913.647.0323.
