Thank you to everyone who generously supported the FCHS Irish4Life Club with your donations and prayers! We took 39 students who had a very powerful experience of just how very alive and well the pro-life movement is in our country. We have come back more convicted than ever that we can make a difference and we can touch the lives of those who are most in need of God’s love: the poor, the vulnerable, those in crisis pregnancy situations, and the elderly. May the good work that God has begun in the lives of these young people be brought to fruition. And may God reward you for your support of them.
