March 2012 has been a great month for pro-life high school students! I have been fortunate enough to spend time with two enthusiastic groups of students. Their desire to learn more about the pro-life issues and how to share the pro-life message with their peers to impact their community and country is inspiring!
I spent four weeks training the Crusaders for Life in Burlington. We worked together through common pro-choice arguments and how to respond with reason and compassion. They are gearing up for their Life Week in April and I am confident will have many significant conversations about the life issues then and in the upcoming months as they finish the school year.
It was the first time I did a presentation since our daughter was born. She attended two of the four training sessions. It was even more significant since the last time I was with this particular club I was pregnant with our daughter and now they were able to meet her.
Pro-Life Students at St. Marcellinus
This past Friday I spent the day at St. Marcellinus in Mississauga with fifty pro-life students who were eager to learn more about the pro-life issues AND how to give presentations to their peers. They will be working in groups to present the case for life in the upcoming months to their school. It was very encouraging to see their interest in this issue – not only do they believe the pro-life message, they are willing to stand up for the preborn and be their voice.
I look forward to hearing about their presentations and providing additional resources for them.
Next stop: Cornwall in April!
