DSC_0017[5].JPGYouth For Life Pro-Life Boot Camp is one of the best opportunities for young people (high school, ages 14-17) to become involved in the work of the pro-life movement.  The CPLC, together with Catholics Respect Life in Fort Worth, is offering two Boot Camp sessions of total pro-life immersion:  Session 1 is a weekend version, June 29 – July 1, and Session 2 is 5 days, July 27 -31.

Activities include praying at abortion centers, talks from experts, skits, testimonials, Mass and the Sacraments, and volunteer projects.  Both sessions will feature Father Tadeusz Pacholczyk, Ph.D. from the National Catholic Bioethics Center.
