"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." -John 10:10

The goal of all retreats: encounter Christ, grow in our relationships with the person of Jesus Christ and strengthen & form holy friendships.

Pro-Life Club

The Pro-Life club provides opportunities for students to be involved in promoting a greater respect for life in all stages - from conception until natural death. The year is highlighted by an annual pilgrimage to Washington , D.C. to participate in the March for Life. 

  • 40 Days for Life: Thursdays from 6 am - 7 am (September 29th - November 3rd).

Trip includes: Mass for Life with 20,000+, marching prayerfully and joyfully with 500,000+, prayer vigil with the Archdiocese of Mobile (led by Archbishop Rodi), National Holocaust Museum, Arlington Cemetery, and more!
