Priest treks across U.S. on pro-life pilgrimage
By Emily Stimpson.
Father Dan Pattee spent his summer spreading Gospel of Life and witnessing firsthand the devastation of abortion.
Rising at dawn and offering Mass is nothing out of the ordinary for any priest. Walking 30-plus miles after the Mass, across America’s highways and byways with a bunch of college students, however, is a little less ordinary — unless you’re Father Dan Pattee.
In the summer of 2012, Father Pattee, a professor of theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville, teamed up with Crossroads for the second time (the first was in 2007), and walked across America, from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C., on a pro-life pilgrimage.
