It will be the first time the sophomore at Cor Jesu Academy has participated in the March for Life.  Thirty nine busses filled with teens, young adults and chaperones left St. Louis to begin the Generation Life STL Pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. Two hundred students from Cor Jesu Academy departed from school and will drive all night in order to arrive in time for the March for Life.  They will join an estimated crowd of over 500,000 people from across the country who gather each year on the anniversary of the Roe V. Wade decision to legalize abortion.

On a chilly afternoon, under a few brief bursts of warmth from the sun, students at Cor Jesu Academy scurried about as they prepared to leave for the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. The annual event commemmorates the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision that essentially legalized abortion on demand.

Father Mike Boehm

If you start a conversation with Fr. Mike Boehm, ask him about the firefighting plaques that hang in his office. The intensity and joy in his answer will tell you a great deal about the man and his priesthood. While assigned as pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Washington, he also volunteered for more than five years as a firefighter for the Washington Fire Department.

If you receive a copy of Matthew Kelly's book "The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic" at church this Christmas -- hold on to it. There's something exciting coming along with it in the new year.

Archbishop Robert J. Carlson recently announced the establishment of "Dynamic Catholic Alive!" a four-year archdiocesan-wide collaborative of parishes, offices, apostolates and individual Catholics to build up the Church as part of our universal baptismal call. Each year will build upon one of the four signs that Kelly identifies in his book: prayer, study, generosity and evangelization.
