Wichita, KS- What started out as the dream of a small Catholic High School class in Beloit, Kansas, has turned into a national pro-life event aimed at activating youth to stand against abortion.
This Friday will mark the first Catholic School for Life Rally. Students from St. Johns Catholic High School in Beliot will travel 2½ hours to Wichita for a rally and prayer outside South Wind Womens Center, the closest abortion clinic to Beliot as a means of education on the reality of abortion. They will be joined by other Catholic High Schools, including Sacred Heart Catholic School in Salina and Kapaun High School in Wichita.
Even Kansas Congressman Tim Huelskamp, who is a pro-life champion in Washington, D.C., has confirmed that he will attend the Wichita event and will be speaking at the rally.
But the Catholic School for Life Rallies are not confined to Kansas. St. Johns faculty organizer, Andrew Neiwald, has received confirmations that Catholic high schools in Colorado, Nebraska, and South Carolina, will be participating by rallying at abortion clinics in their communities. Some will include prayer, the reading of Bible verses, and even the singing of Christmas Carols at their local abortion sites.
The event has received blessings from Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York and Neiwald has been told that prayers are being offered for the event from as far away as Brazil.
The students hope that this event will spread and become a yearly tradition that will also include students from Protestant schools in the future.
Students in Beloit emphasize that everyone, not just students, are invited to participate in the December 6 event.
We encourage everyone to turn out for a rally and prayer at their local abortion clinics to show support for what these amazing high school students are doing, said Troy Newman President of Operation Rescue. These students will get up early, drive far, and brave a cold Kansas winter morning to offer prayer for women seeking abortions. They are an example of sacrifice we can all applaud and emulate.
The Catholic School for Life Rally in Wichita will be held at 9:30 am on December 6, 2013, at South Wind Womens Center, 5107 E. Kellogg, Wichita, KS. Operation Rescue staff will attend in support.
Participants are encouraged to send photos of their December 6 events to St. Johns students at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This year--- the first year --- it's just 3 or 4 sites. Next year, they hope to have dozens or hundreds.
This what I call a Catholic education.
i hope it snowballs all ovre the Country and world.
Abortion is murder.
Will this be before or after the catholics rally for Obama and the Democrat party? < /sarcasm >
didn’t the Pope say we could make up our own morality as long as we stuck to it?
and that Jesus was pretending?
These groups should have a plan on how to react to angry pro-abortion supporters. They can become violently emotional very quickly. I’ve seen numerous reports of people, all age groups, all races behaving very badly when a pro-life groups demonstration forces them to think about the full consequences of what they are about to do. If I had such a pro=life group, I would also hire one or two bodyguards, or people ready to step in and protect the pro-lifers from abuse. Also, have one or two people who only job will be to film and record any foul treatment.
If someone reminded you that you’re a foul multi-murderer of innocent babies,
though you’d been trying to deny it for years,
you’d probably get violent too.
Now, don’t take the above as an excuse.
I’m just saying they KNOW what they are and what they did
and that it was wrong and evil,
and the violent reaction is the outpouring of being reminded.
Franciscan University of Steubenville has had kids protesting outside a downtown Pittsburgh abortion clinic every Saturday during the school year since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.
Only took until post 5 before the Catholic bashing is beginning.
I’m proud to be Catholic and pro-life and don’t spend my time bashing protestants on this blog at every opportunity! Get a life.
P.S. I didn’t vote for Obama or the democrats.
Franciscan University as an example to us all.
