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)
