On Friday and Saturday August 9-10, Pro-Lifers of the Mystical Rose will be hosting the first ever pro-life youth conference in San Francisco. The Pro-Life Youth Conference NorCal will be held at the event center of San Francisco’s Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption.
Speakers will include representatives from Live Action, members of the Sisters of Life, pro-life hero Walter Hoye, Joe Langfeld from Human Life Alliance, testimonials from Stacey Massey of Abortion Recovery International, and Patricia Sandoval. Event organizers hope to attract 500 pro-life youth from all over California. A number of parishes have committed to bring buses with their young people, and some San Francisco parishes will be providing accommodation to out-of town pilgrims.
The event page of Pro-Lifers of the Mystical Rose says the purpose of the conference is “…to educate over 500 youth on Abortion, Contraception, and Abstinence issues; and to empower them to take an active stand in our world.
Pro-Lifers of the Mystical Rose was founded by college student Maria Lewis. Lewis’ biographical page on the Mystical Rose website states, in part “Maria Lewis, the oldest of six children, from Catholic Asian-Indian immigrants Felba and Walter Lewis, was born and raised to boldly live out her Faith and to stand up for Life, God, and Family. At an early age, Lewis felt a calling to take a public stand against the challenges that Catholics face in our present day—the injustices to the human person, the threats against family and marriage, and the violations of an individual’s God-given rights. After prayer, consultation with priests, and her parent’s support, Lewis founded Pro-Lifers of the Mystical Rose in 2011. Today, this youth-led organization features members throughout Northern California, all working towards educating the youth and informing the public on the stance we must take as Catholics.”
Despite her young age, Lewis has already been a featured speaker at both 40 days for Life rallies, at San Francisco’s second Rally for Religious Freedom, and she travels around giving talks to youth groups, churches, and different pro-life events. Lewis says “It is our country too, we must all stand up to help fight this catastrophe against Life, marriage, and God….”
The organization is offering sponsorships to young people who might otherwise not be able to attend, but are still seeking donations from Catholics and others to cover the cost of the conference.

She does have beautiful eyes if that is what you mean, sparkling and not dead looking.
And the name of the group is beautiful, too, Pro-Lifers of the Mystical Rose (Our Lady of course).
It is encouraging and wonderful that they are reaching out to our youth. I am pleased with happiness! I pray for a wonderful and blessed time. As this is coming right around the corner, lets keep it in our prayers. : )
I know they are still short of funds, so if you can donate please do.
I have noticed how far more attractive these young women are compared to those clipped haired man hating ghouls who chanted “hail Satan” in Texas..God Bless these young women….
Sometimes these chants quietly echo down through the decades. The Rosary Brigades seem to be the only effective forces.
I understand they need donations!
Let’s all step up to the plate………
They are the future of the pro-life movement and we need to SUPPORT them
in all ways!!!
Elizabeth I already made a commitment with my humble donation this month…maybe in the future…but for those that can..lets keep it in our prayers.
God bless our youth and I pray for them and offer this reminder to them and others …to surrender your self to God. We are save with Him.
Few souls understand what God would accomplish in them if they were to abandon themselves unreservedly to Him and if they were to allow His grace to mold them accordingly. — St. Ignatius Loyola
