On behalf of the Youth Group of Holy Ghost Church Parish March for Life:

We cannot begin to thank all of you for such a beautful pilgimmage to D.C. as we marched with 500,000 "LIFERS" PEACEFULLY to Capital Hill representing life.  Seeing the FIRST PRESIDENT EVER TO SHOW HIS RESEPECT FOR THE SANCTITY OF LIFE PUBLICLY has been such a historical experience never forgotten. Walking through the DOORS OF MERCY at the Basilica of The Immaculate Conception had us in awe. These teens were so compassionate, passionate and respectful---it was an honor to stand solid with them and their love for life! 

WE GIVE THANKS TO GOD FOR EVERY STEP TAKEN! THANK YOU for supporting us!

 

 

Meet our 7th Grade Scripture Student of the week: Cate Fisher!

 

Kate presented the Theology of the Body Scripture of the week:

 

1 COR 13: "Faith, hope, and love remain but the greatest gift is Love"

CHECK YOUR KIDS’ PHONES -15 apps parents need to know about. (Six of them were used by suspected predators who were recently arrested.)

  • The first is 'MeetMe,' an app where teens can easily be in contact with users much older than them, with an emphasis on dating.
  • 'WhatsApp' and 'SnapChat' are for messaging, but what you should know is teens can send unlimited messages, have video chats and even share their live location with other users, people they may not even know. 
  • 'Skout' is a flirting app that's used to meet and chat with new people. Teens and adults are in different groups, but ages aren’t verified. 
  • 'TikTok' is used for sharing user created videos that can contain bad words, even adult content.
  • 'Badoo' and 'Bumble' are dating apps for adults, but teens can still find ways to join. 
  • 'Grindr' is geared towards the LGBTQ community. It allows users to share photos and meet up based on phone’s GPS location.  
  • 'Kik' is specifically for kids, but anyone can join and anyone can contact or direct message your child. 
  • 'LiveMe' is a live streaming app, but you don’t know who’s watching and your kids location is revealed.
  • 'Holla' is all about connecting strangers around the world through video chat. Enough said. 
  • 'Whisper' is a social confessional where kids can remain anonymous, but still share their feelings. And it can reveal your child’s location for a meet up. 
  • 'ASKfm' encourages people to allow anonymous users to ask them questions, which opens the door for online bullying.
  • 'Hot or Not' rates users on attractiveness.. There’s no age verification and users can send each other messages. 
  • And lastly, 'Calculator%' apps are several secret apps that allows kids to hide their photos, videos, even browser history. 

Congratulations to the young men and women who received the Sacrament of Confirmation with Bishop Michael Duca on Monday, Oct. 21st!
