Eighth-graders at St. Dominic School in Springfield, Ky., have pledged to pray a brief daily prayer through May for an unborn child as part of a new school program called Spiritual Adoption.

“While this child will remain unknown to his or her “spiritual parent” we know that God knows which child needs our prayer,” said an announcement from the school.

The program aims to :

  • Encourage students to pray that expectant parents will respond to God’s grace and welcome their child into life.
  • Educate the students about the development of an unborn child.
  • Provide needy mothers with donated baby items.

In May the class will conclude the program with a baby shower where they will gather new and gently used items to donate to a local pregnancy resource center. They will also speak to their schoolmates about Spiritual Adoption.
