  • Thank you, OneLife LA
    January 22, 2019  |  Around the ADLA  |  

    As I was making my way across LA’s Historic State Park to greet my students from St. Monica Academy during the OneLife LA Walk for Life this past weekend, I was halted by a couple yelling my name, “Chris… Chris Plance.” I turned and to my surprise it was Mr. and Mrs. Noyes from Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Tujunga. When I saw them, I ran over to give them a big hug and to thank them for standing up for life in more ways than one.

I see little kids in strollers, seniors pushing four-wheeled walkers, perspiring retirees carrying Knights of Columbus banners, and a group of Hispanic teenaged boys wearing matching T-shirts with hearts. Scattered throughout the long line of marchers, people are carrying Our Lady of Guadalupe images emblazoned in bold colors.

  • ‘The great cause of life in our time’
    January 21, 2019  |  Around the ADLA, The Latest  |  

    We are praying tonight for the unborn.

    This word reminds us that life begins long before we ever see it. The Bible tells us that every human life begins with the desire of God. Before he forms us in the womb, he knows who we are. He knows who he wants us to be. Even before we are born, God has plans for us.
