Pro-Life Contest Winners

Wednesday, March 3, 2021


The Office of Family Life annually invites students to participate in a Pro-Life essay and poster contest. This year, the ministry also hosted a prayer contest. The activities are designed to bring awareness of the sacredness of human life from conception to natural death and promote its protection. Both contests centered around the theme:  "Jesus showed us the Good News: Every Life is Precious."


Congratulations to the winners!

Elise Paredes, a freshman at St. Augustine High School, won the Pro-Life Essay Contest and the Prayer Contest.  

Isabella Pici, a fourth-grader who is homeschooled, won the Pro-Life Poster Contest. 

Humberto Garza, a nurse and parishioner at Christ the King Catholic Church, Laredo, won the Pro-Life Prayer Contest in Spanish.
