Don’t Forget About Me Project

Nora Clancy '18, Contributing Writer

As Christmas Day approaches, kids search the house, hoping to find presents tucked away for Christmas. But for many kids and teenagers, Christmas presents are just not a feasible option for their family. Money is much better spent on the essentials like a home, fresh water, food, and medical bills. Organizations all across Massachusetts and the country, such as Toys for Tots and Operation Christmas Child, do their best to bring a gift to every forgotten or poor child, but there are always those who fall through the cracks. Teenagers between the ages of 12-18 are often among those forgotten dur...

Take Action Against Christian Persecution

Maddie Marcucci '19, Faith Editor

Persecuted Christians often feel alone and afraid because of the terror they experience and the lack of believers in their country to lean on for support. However, here are some actions that you can take to provide encouragement and light for those in despair: You can take a few moments to write a letter to children who were victims of a church bombing in Indonesia in 2016. Children were playing in a park outside the church while their parents were in a church service when the park got bombed. Alvaro, Trinity, and Anita are in need of our encouragement.  Be sure to also look up helpful p...

Open Letter to Montrosians: Making Connections — Key to Human Dignity

Open Letter to Montrosians: Making Connections — Key to Human Dignity

Hannah Marino '18, Co-Sports Editor

Dear Montrosians, "I think it would have been better if she had just died quickly, instead of what actually happened," Melinda revealed. 'What could be better than dying?’ I thought, concerned with what she was planning to reveal next. She continued, explaining that her mom went into a coma for 11 years due to too much anesthesia before a C-section to deliver Melinda's 15th sibling.
