In lieu of this year’s annual trip to Washington D.C. to participate in the March for Life, Everest student government planned a “We Stand for Life” event for students in eighth-12th grades, Jan. 29.
After early dismissal, high school students opted in to participate in a pro-life demonstration on Clarkston Road in support of the unborn and the end to abortion.
Despite the cold, students stood out on the unplowed sidewalks, praying the rosary and waving to passersby.
Students then proceeded to the high school gym where they had a time of prayer in Eucharistic Adoration.
EC student government president Michael McGrath and secretary Anthony Felix shared their testimonies with their peers.
“Life is up to God and His plan,” said Felix. “And I totally trust His plan, seeing His plan for me and everything He has done for me. As humans we’ve tried to play God and take things into our own hands, when really, it would be better to leave things up to His goodness.”
