Father Eduardo Ortiz-Santiago and Danielle Olive, Genelle LaPlace, Tristan Blanchard and Timothy Olive from St. Thomas gave an outstanding presentation "Bound 4 Life USVI" to the students of St. Joseph High School on St.Croix on during the morning of October 25, 2013. They showed an excellent video of the 2013 National March for Life showing the participation of our youth from the Diocese of St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands.
The purpose of the "Bound 4 Life USVI" is to pray for the end of abortion and the reversal of the Roe Vs. Wade decision of 1973; the education of youth and others to promote respect for all human life from the moment of conception to natural death and to participate in the National March for Life and related activities in Washington, D.C. every year. In 2014, the group will go to D.C. from Monday, January 20 to 24. A large number of students from St. Joseph High School are planning to travel to the 2014 event and are currently involved in fund-raising to help support the expenses of the trip. Anyone wishing to help with the group fund-raising or to support individual students may call the school office at 340-692-3455 for more information.
