Academy Celebrates True Love on Valentine's
The True Love Waits Club at Academy of Our Lady celebrated the true meaning of love on Valentine’s Day. The day began with a Eucharistic Celebration during which a group of students made the True Love Waits commitment and received a ring that is to be worn until their wedding day. Andrew Gutierrez, a seminarian at St. Joseph’s Abby in St. Benedict, LA, spoke on God’s love and each person’s call to dignity through chaste living at a school assembly.
"True Love Waits" is a national abstinence youth movement that's helping teenagers and college students save sex for marriage.
