Today, as young people across this nation took part in a school walk-out to end gun violence, students in some of our Catholic high schools in the Diocese of Trenton walked out of their classrooms to come together in prayer. 

I was deeply moved to stand with the students in Notre Dame High School in Lawrenceville as we prayed the Rosary for an end to gun violence in our schools and remembered its victims. I stood in support of several other of our high schools where similar gatherings were held, including St. John Vianney in Holmdel; Donovan Catholic in Toms River; Holy Cross Academy, Delran; St. Rose in Belmar, and Trenton Catholic Academy in Hamilton.
