RJ is currently a junior at Chaminade, he grew up going to St. Charles Borromeo Parish, and is excited to be joining St. Clement’s Youth Group soon. He is a proud Eagle Scout and finds joy in camping, volunteering, swim team, and playing on two different volleyball teams. If he could be any Disney princess he would be Moana, because she is very adventurous and very brave, much like he is; Moana always knows what needs to get done and when she puts her mind to it, she can accomplish anything!

This is the 4th March for Life that RJ has attended, and he loves the opportunity to worship and spend time in DC with his peers from STL. He is passionate about marching for a cause that is so important to him. He says that he is not just pro-life, he is pro-EVERYONE. RJ believes that no life is too small and that everyone has the ability to make a difference in this world.

When asked what advice he would give to other teens after they leave the March, he said: “Be yourself and to respect others. By remembering to carry the things learned on this pilgrimage back into your normal, every day lives, you will be living out the pro-life message!”
