The Many Ways Notre Dame Academy Respects Life!
DIOCESAN PRO-LIFE MASS
Last night, October 4, the Diocese of Covington celebrated Respect Life Month with a Pro-Life Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption. Two students from NDA, Junior – Maria Danneman and Senior – Bella Cooney, Life Club Co-Presidents, represented NDA in the procession.
NDA LIFE MASS
This morning the Notre Dame Academy community came together to celebrate mass. Our intention for this mass was for the Respect for all Life from Conception to Natural Death. Fr. Eric Boelscher was our celebrant and two seniors, Abby Kelly and Lauren Reinersman, gave a brief joint reflection at the beginning of mass connecting our school year theme of Embracing Dignity in Self, Others and Community to the Respect Life theme of the mass. It was a very spiritual and moving mass for all in attendance.
