Teens for Life
Thank you to all who participated in the Teens for Life activities this past weekend!


First Saturday
Mass and prayer at Planned Parenthood had eight participants and St James joined us along with Deacon Ron and several other pro-life supporters, as we prayed the Rachel’s Rosary. Hopefully we caused some cancellations!

40 Days for Life
Prayer Vigil on Sunday March 6 had 48 participants covering 10 hrs, praying through cold, rain, and hail. We had a great variety of participants: students, parents, teachers, coaches, and alumni parents. Thank you, Thank you.

Spring Break Day Mission Trip
For those having a stay-cation for Spring Break, Teens for Life is offering a Service Day.  We will help out at Wyandotte Pregnancy Center on March 16, 11:30-2:30. We will tour and learn about their ministry, have a quick pizza lunch and help clean, sort and arrange donated goods. If you need a ride from STA, we will leave at 11 am and return around 3pm, meet near the Chapel entrance to the school. Contact Mrs Loughman at [email protected] to sign up.
