On Thursday, we had a guest speaker at our formation series for college students. Nicole Cavey, Founder and CEO of The Avi Project came to talk to our students. In her own words “At 19, during my freshman year of college, I found myself pregnant. Insurmountable feelings of fear of the future consumed me. This wasn’t part of my plan. I was lucky, I was loved and supported. This should ALWAYS be the case for every woman in this situation. This is why God has placed on my heart and has been preparing me for over 30 years to love and support expectant college students like myself and give hope for a bright future.”

The Avi Project empowers expectant students to choose life and their education by providing all the resources they need. Check out their wonderful mission at

May our Lady of Guadalupe keep you all under her mantle.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Richard, MC
