Faith Feature 

Love All Life, #lovethyneighbor


Student members of St. Paul's Pro-Life Club planned and facilitated a school-wide assembly on the theme of " Love All Life, #lovethyneighbor " on Wednesday, December 12. The timing of the event coincided with the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the unborn and of the Americas. Students welcomed guest speakers Abigail Young, Regional Coordinator for  Students For Life of America in New England, and Sister Amaris Salata, F.S.E., who works for the Archdiocese of Hartford Pro-Life Ministry. 

Club members then presented about initiatives at St. Paul, including a donation-based fundraiser for programs through World Vision. Students then discussed the assembly in their advisory groups before Mass for the Feast day. Thank you to our guests and student presenters!
