Students hear pro-life talk
January 20th, 2010

Marin Catholic High School hosted talks Jan. 6 by Rev. Walter Hoye, a noted Bay Area pro-life activist. The event took place in the school’s new Pope John Paul II Student Center. Father Tom Daly, Marin Catholic president, offered opening remarks and welcomed the visiting Baptist minister.


Rev. Hoye, who recently served a 30-day jail term for protesting outside of Planned Parenthood facilities, focused on the need to be vocal about pro-life. He spoke very positively about the upcoming Walk for Life West Coast where he has been a featured speaker in past years. Students from Marin Catholic are expected to march in this year’s walk Jan. 23.


Rev. Hoye gave six one-hour presentations in order to reach the entire 720-member student body and visitors.


“Rev. Hoye was able to eloquently and powerfully reveal the truth about abortion and young people are always drawn to the truth,” Father Daly said following the talks. Hoye proclaimed from the psalms noting “children are a heritage from the Lord and the fruit of the womb is a reward from him.”
