SOUTH CAROLINA—Students put their talents and creativity to good use recently during National Pro-life Chalk Day, which is one of many activities held to celebrate October’s Respect Life Month.

Youth at schools and parishes around the diocese broke out their chalk skills for the national celebration as a way to help evangelize the message of life. Students also participated in a number of other events: they prayed the rosary, made pro-life posters, and served in outreach projects to help crisis pregnancy centers.

Here are some photos provided by schools in the diocese.
