Popular Catholic speaker Chris Stefanick energized and challenged more than 400 Catholic high school students, pro-life moderators and campus ministers representing 23 Catholic high schools and academies, plus one home school, in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia during the annual High School Respect Life Leadership Day Oct. 5 at Neumann University. Members of the Culture Project, a movement of Catholic young adults to renew the culture through Christian witness, also was on hand.
The educational half-day for the teenagers was sponsored by the archdiocesan Office for Life and Family. Neumann University generously donated use of its Mirenda Center for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development for the conference. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
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.
