prolife march

Holy Redeemer High School’s Pro Life Club will send over 20 of its members to Washington, D.C. on Jan. 22 for the 42nd  Annual March for Life. The school held a special Mass in support of the Pro Life movement and to send forth club members as they represent Holy Redeemer at the March.

The club supports the Pro-Life movement by participating in the march annually and through activities during the year. They created shirts for the event that include the phrase “Babies leave footprints in our heart forever from the very start.” As a Catholic school of the Diocese of Scranton, Holy Redeemer affirms the belief that human life holds a treasured place within God’s creation.

The March for Life is held each January on the anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court ruling

Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion. It attracts tens of thousands of supporters.
