Delone Catholic High School Participates in Virtual March for Life

Delone Catholic High School students participated in a “Virtual March for Life” on Jan. 28, during all three lunch periods. The school’s virtual activities were held in conjunction with the national March for Life, which moved to a virtual event this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

“I’m very glad and feel very fortunate that the students have an opportunity to do

this,” said Kate Phenicie, Spiritual Life Director and Religion teacher. “They were

afraid they were missing out. This is giving a voice to them, and a meaningful way to

participate. I’m encouraged to see how many young people are passionate about this.”

Students were asked to write why they’re pro-life on a sign, which they were photographed holding. The students’ messaged echoed the deeply pro-life and

compassionate teachings of the Catholic Church, with slogans such as “A life is a

life, no matter how small,” “Defend the sacredness of every human life,” “Parents and

children need love,” and “Life is precious.”

“I think it’s a great opportunity for them to voice their support,” said Father Samuel

Miller, Delone Catholic’s chaplain. “This is a way to make their voices heard. It’s brave. It takes a lot of guts. They know they’re the majority, but people make them out to be the minority.”

The Virtual March for Life was organized by the school’s Respect Life Club, which is

under the guidance of Julia Fuhrman, Social Studies teacher and department chair.
