Join the Saints for Life Club!
By Rachel Richter
Hey Seton! Whether you are a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior, you can always be more involved! Not only does school involvement look great on a college or job application, it is also a worthwhile way to make new friends, express your creativity and beliefs, and give back to your school and community. The best way to get involved is to include yourself in activities such as sports, community service, and various school clubs.
A popular school club – that you should ALL consider joining – is the Saints for Life club. Seton’s Saints for Life club focuses on the Catholic teaching of the “right to life.” The club aims to raise awareness of issues such as abortion, the death penalty, suicide, and any topics that deal with the right to life. Any and all Seton students are welcomed and encouraged to join the Saints for Life club by attending weekly meetings after school on Thursdays in room 105. In January, the Saints for Life club travels to Washington D.C. for an event known as the March for Life. The March for Life is an annual pro-life rally in protest to abortion. The club joins people from all over the country in this protest on the streets of Washington D.C. This is an event that club members work for and look forward to every year. However, you do not have to attend the March for Life if you are a member of the Saints for Life club; it is more like an optional field trip.
The unique thing about this club is that it is run entirely by students. Mr. Kovacic, the club moderator, selected a “board” of Seton students to run the Saints for Life club. These students plan weekly meetings that involve the discussion of topics such as the realities of abortion, how to dress and behave at school dances, the importance of maintaining a positive self-image, and many other interesting and motivational concepts.
The Saints for Life club is something that you will both enjoy and get a lot out of. If you are still unsure if you want to join the club, just come to a meeting on Thursday and see what it’s like. Don’t be afraid to try something new and put yourself out there. You may end up liking something you would have never considered before!
