Youth for Life in Hibbing

The Youth for Life group of Assumption School in Hibbing met for a Christmas gathering in December. The fifth- and sixth-grade students heard Father Nick Nelson talk about being prolife and the concerns of promoting the dignity of the natural bodily life and the connection of safeguarding the spiritual life of each soul. The children responded to the question of what they could give to Jesus on his birthday with actions such as: pray more, be nice to brothers or sisters, go to Mass, listen to teachers and help around the house. They were told doing these things would help them grow in virtue. The children had the opportunity to write Jesus a Christmas card with their intentions, which they will bring to Mass on Christmas to offer to the new born King.
