WASHINGTON, DC -- Members of the Saint Joseph High School community traveled from Metuchen, NJ, to Washington, D.C. to represent respect for all human life on Friday, Jan. 27.
“The March for Life rally allowed our students to demonstrate our Catholic commitment to protect life and to communicate to the world the value of all human lives, especially the little ones who cannot defend themselves,” stated Principal Justin Fleetwood, who attended the rally with his students.
In a show of solidarity, students of Saint Joe’s aligned with students from their brother-school, Brother Martin High School from New Orleans, Louisiana. Both all-boy Catholic college-preparatory schools are operated by the Brothers of the Sacred Heart.
Saint Joseph High School students pride themselves in academic excellence along with diverse opportunities to give to people in need. During the nationally celebrated Catholic Schools Week, Saint Joseph students experienced a week-long agenda on serving the underprivileged. This is a continuous focal point for the Saint Joseph High School community throughout the year. The students gained a further understanding of teen hunger and spent their time “packing the pantries, and preparing lunch and dinner meals for those people who are less fortunate.
While Catholic Schools Week is highlighted for one week a year, the students of Saint Joseph High School are afforded the experience to go beyond the ordinary reach and to make an impact each day.
