Dear Friends of Good Shepherd:

The days seem to be flying by and with Spring right around the corner, I know that people plan for outings and events early.  That’s why I’m inviting you now to mark your calendars for a very special CELEBRATION called, Cross The Bridge For Life, which will be taking place on Sunday June 3, 2018.  This event marks our 13th Year Anniversary!  Cross The Bridge For Life is a peaceful and prayerful walk bringing thousands of people, both young and old, with different faith backgrounds from the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area together with the same objective:  to bring awareness in respecting human life at all stages – from conception to natural death.

Our momentum continues to grow!  This is a non-denominational event sponsored by 25 life-affirming organizations, agencies, and churches in the Greater Cincinnati area. Because our numbers have grown over the years and have exceeded our capacity to meet at our former location (the World Peace Bell), the gathering now takes place at the Newport Festival area (behind the Newport Aquarium on the Levee) along the Ohio River (just left of the Purple People Bridge).  The fun begins at 1:00 p.m., with the actual Walk starting at 2:00 p.m.  There will be entertainment, clowns, balloon twisters, free t-shirts, face painting, music and a complimentary JTM picnic immediately following the Walk. This family-friendly event has become a fabulous opportunity for the public to stand up for the sanctity of human life while filling the Purple People Bridge with joy and laughter.  We are all God’s children!  Why not CELEBRATe?

Please plan on joining the CELEBRATION by marking your calendar with this special day!  I look forward to walking with you as we Cross The Bridge For Life together!
