AHA Welcomes Pro Life Witness
Students at the Academy of the Holy Angels in Demarest recently welcomed Mrs. Cheryl Riley, of the Newark Archdiocese’s Respect Life Office, who visited their Religious Studies classes on January 14th to discuss the topic of post abortion healing. Mrs. Riley offered a personal and moving witness about her own journey toward healing and described her involvement with Rachel’s Vineyard, a weekend retreat experience available to women and men experiencing the spiritual and emotional pain of abortion. She cautioned, “Abortion is real, and the effects are often lifelong but there is hope and healing for those affected.” Her visit was a timely one, coming just one week in advance of the annual March for Life in Washington.
