Crusaders For Life | Alive and Active
The Catholic social teaching of Right to Life promotes compassion and concern for all human beings from the time of conception to a natural death; aiming to protect those who are innocent and vulnerable within society.
Crusaders for Life is a club at Scecina Memorial with the goal of bringing awareness and education to the issues of our most basic human right. Crusaders for Life, formerly known as the Right to Life Club, is a club open to all students. Their aim is to educate and encourage students to grow and become leaders in their beliefs. Students examine all facets of the ‘pro-life’ movement, including the defense of the unborn, death row, euthanasia, and the ability to care for one’s family or children born with disabilities. The primary objective is for students to see all people as gifts from God who should to be looked after and cherished.
Led by club president Sammie Smith ‘14, senior club officers, and club moderators Mr. James Maslar and Miss Angie Pometto, the Crusaders for Life are a very active club. They participate in a variety of programs such as an Archdiocese prayer group, helping the Little Flower Parish’s Gabriel Project, running a Twitter account (@crusaders_life), attending the Right to Life Dinner in Indianapolis, holding a Trivia Night Fundraiser, organizing Life Week, and traveling to the March for Life in Washington D.C.
The March for Life trip was a great success this year, with 48 students attending! This was made possible by the students’ first Trivia Night fundraiser held last fall. It was a successful night full of camaraderie, competition, great food, and prizes. So be sure to join in and support the Crusaders for Life next fall at their second Trivia Night!
The Crusaders for Life offer compassion for others and exemplify Father Tom’s message to “give that little extra.”
