Teen Life Day


Students at the Diocesan Youth Rally visited the Respect Life table to spiritually adopt a baby in danger of abortion. The students were invited to name their child and pray for the baby for 9 months. Each received Archbishop Fulton Sheen's Spiritual Adoption Prayer and entered the baby's name in the "Book of Life" which was presented at closing Mass. Some students were creative and used their name tags as baby holders: Sydney and Ciara LeRoy (Malone), Hannah Belknap (Hammond), Maggie Marceau (Malone), Liam O'Neil (Massena).
