Pro-life Patriots, St. John Bosco's new chapter of Students for Life of America welcomed the public to their first Candlelight Mass on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe in the school chapel. Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patroness of the unborn.  Pro-life Patriot members received sponors for 160 candles which were lit throughout the chapel and served with the altar candles as the only lighting for the Mass.  Fr. Paul officiated the Mass with Deacons Ryan Uhlenkott and Eric Wassmuth.  This was the first major fundraiser for the group who have additional plans to continue supporting life, not only for the unborn but for those who have chosen life through adoption and fostering as well.  Proceeds from the candle sponsorships are being used to provide Christmas gifts for 40 local foster children, as well as providing donations to local Pro-life pregnancy centers and adoption centers.  The Pro-life Patriots are grateful to those who sponsored a candle and thank all who protect the unborn and chose life through support of foster families and adoption.
