Ocean to Ocean- World Pro-life Campaign
A copy of the Częstochowa icon of the Virgin Mary which has been leading the ;From Ocean to Ocean pro-life procession’ from the Pacific Ocean (Vladivostok) to Madrid and then to the Atlantic coast (Fátima, Portugal).

Икона Божией Матери «Ченстоховская»

The campagn’s motto: “East and West in defense of life!”

The route of the pilgrimage will run through the territory of more than twenty countries: Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, Germany, France, Italy, Croatia, Serbia, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, UK.

One of the goals of the campaign is to support the countries with pro-life and pro-family legislation—Hungary and Poland, which face aggressive political pressure from the European Parliament and other anti-family institutions.
