Diocesan youth attend ninth annual Pro-Life Boot Camp


Diocesan youth recently attended the ninth annual Pro-Life Boot Camp from Thursday, July 25 through Sunday, July 28 on the campus of Stonehill College in Easton. Sponsored by the diocesan Pro-Life Apostolate, the camp offered teen-agers from 14 to 17 a chance to learn about the importance of life from birth to natural death through a series of inspiring speakers, by hearing prayerful witness, and by partaking in the Sacraments — along with some fellowship and fun. Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V., top left, donned his native colors to join the group on Friday, July 26, for a friendly match of his beloved soccer. On Saturday morning the campers gathered outside the Four Women Abortion Clinic in Attleboro, bottom right, to pray for the women who were entering it as well as the unborn baby they were carrying. After praying outside the clinic, the group attended Mass at St. Vincent de Paul Church in Attleboro, where some of the Pro-Life leaders for the parish served them breakfast. The campers also stopped by to visit the new Little Flower Early Childhood Learning Center in Attleboro, bottom left.
