West Catholic High School begins its first annual Pro-Life Week starting Monday, Jan. 27. The aim of the week is to help students identify what it means to be pro-life; expose them to pro-life topics such as abortion, violence, chastity and self-respect; and have students determine the value of being pro-life in society.
The schedule of activities follows:
Monday, Jan. 27: Teachers in individual theology classes will introduce an over view of what it means to be pro-life.
Tuesday, Jan. 28: Speakers from Life Training Institute will speak to students in the theology classes on self-respect as being pro-life. Life Training provides speakers through a grant.
Wednesday, Jan. 29: Speakers from Generation Life will speak at a morning assembly on chastity and pro-Life, as well as in all theology classes.
Thursday, Jan. 30: “Canvas of lost dreams” presentation, with the theme of “violence and pro-life,” will feature a mural in the school gym dedicated to all young people in Philadelphia who have been killed due to violence.
Friday, Jan. 31: The retreat for juniors will focus on using one’s God-given gifts.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
