Washington, D.C., July 25, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – On August 11, Andrew (Kent) Moore’s family will be in Washington, D.C., to attend Crossroads’ closing ceremonies. These ceremonies will be a memorial for the 20-year-old college student who was killed by a passing vehicle on July 20 during the cross-country pro-life walk.
The remaining three weeks of the walk will also be carried out in Andrew’s memory.

“Over the weekend we had all the volunteers pray and decide how to move forward,” Jim Nolan said in a statement to LifeSiteNews.com. “After prayer and talking with their individual families – all of our walks and volunteers have decided to finish the last three weeks of the walks in Andrew’s honor.”
The closing ceremonies will begin with a 10 o’clock morning Mass at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, followed by a pilgrimage to the Capitol for a noon rally. Andrew will be remembered and prayed for during these events.
Crossroads will fly the Moore family out from their home in Concord, California. Andrew’s four siblings and parents will make the trip.
Before joining the Crosswalk team, Andrew, a rising senior at Thomas Aquinas College, spent hours praying in front of abortion mills and helping out at women’s crisis pregnancy centers. “He was not ‘in your face’ or mean,” said Andrew’s father, Joseph Moore. “But would simply pray and use kind words.”
Rev. Paul Raftery, Andrew’s spiritual advisor at Thomas Aquinas College, wrote that Andrew’s “devotion and work for life was not for show, but because he realized he would never be at peace until he carried through on what he knew to be true.”
“The college will soon, or perhaps now, have another great intercessor in Heaven,” he wrote.
