SV Educational Foundation Funds Local March for Life

We are so grateful to the SV Educational Foundation for covering the $25 cost for every high school student to attend the March for Life events this year.

COVID has put a different look on so many things this school year and March for Life is a big one. It was with sadness that the decision was made that students would not attend the march in Washington D.C. With safety of our students being number one, alternative plans were soon set in place.

On January 29 we will be having our very own March For Life events on campus, with a march downtown at 10:00 a.m. All students in grades 7-12 will participate in the march with the 7th and 8th graders arriving back at SV de Paul at about 10:45 for lunch and to resume their regular afternoon classes.

High school students (grades 9-12) will have breakfast and hear a historical overview of abortion legislation in the United States. SV Students for Life will then talk before students get lined up for the march. Lunch for this group is provided by SV Youth Ministry/VMY and then students will hear words from our featured guest, Tony Melendez.

We ask that students bring coats, gloves, hats, etc to stay warm.

Music, a guest speaker and small group discussion will conclude the afternoon, after prayer at 4:00 P.M. Students that do not drive can be picked up from St. Vincent Gym lobby area.

Permission forms are due on January 15. Students will receive permission forms today and a copy is attached to this email. Students will be assigned to teacher groups for supervision and small Pro-Life talks/discussion.

Again, thank you to the Educational Foundation for making this possible for our students!

If you have already paid the $25.00 to Emily Hager for March For Life, you will be reimbursed. If you have any questions, please contact Emily Hager at 573-547-4300 ext 106 or via email at ehager@svdepaul.org.
