Spend a day at it and you’ll quickly find that this boot camp is like no other in the nation. Instead of military exercises and drill sergeants, you’ll find high school teens doing service activities, praying Rosaries, joining in praise and worship, and sitting in a lecture hall soaking up information from various leaders in the pro-life movement. Instead of conditioning and marching, you’ll find them waking early to pray outside local abortion centers, learning about the history of Roe v. Wade, and having fun together and building friendships.
The Knights of Columbus Western Metroplex Chapter presented a check for $197,461 to Bishop Michael Olson July 28 at its 19th annual Priest and Religious Appreciation Dinner held at St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Arlington. The chapter, comprising the 54 Knights councils in the Diocese of Fort Worth, hosts the annual event to support those who serve God as priests, deacons, sisters, brothers, and seminarians, as well as to help fund a ministry designated by the bishop, the diocesan Deaf Ministry.
Dr. Steven Mosher was pro-choice and God-less when he left for China’s mainland in 1979 as part of a diplomatic relations program between the U.S. and China. After a nightmarish experience in China, the Stanford University social scientist came back pro-life, certain of God’s existence, and determined to expose and stop the numerous human rights abuses the Chinese Communist regime was committing in the name of “overpopulation.” Mosher, now a Catholic and an internationally-recognized expert on China and population issues, a best-selling author, and president of the Population Research Institute, shared his experiences with population control in the People’s Republic of China with an audience of 70 people at St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Grapevine July 25.
