Pro-Life Club

The Pro-Life Club participants pledge to pray daily for nine months for a baby in danger of being aborted. Students in grades 6-8 are eligible to join in September. The club meets once a month in Room 205 during the students’ recess period. Prayer cards are provided to the students. The club members encourage one another to continue praying daily for their spiritually adopted baby. Students are educated about the development of the pre-born child. A poster is displayed showing the development of the baby in that particular month in which we are praying.

In early December, Pro-Life Lifesaver candy rolls are sold in the cafeteria during lunch time. Proceeds are donated to a local crisis pregnancy center. Then on the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patroness of the unborn, we have a special prayer meeting at the convent. This meeting includes a fiesta lunch of tacos and nachos.

During the second week of May, the school and parish "Celebrate Life." It is a time in which special recognition is given to the sanctity and gift of life. Baby items are collected throughout the week at both the school and the church. Pro-Life Club members help organize the items, which are taken to a local crisis pregnancy center. Every other year in May, the whole school participates in a “Walk for Life.” When the club gathers for its final meeting in May, we say prayers of thanks. Birthday cake is shared, as we celebrate the lives of the babies we’ve prayed for.
