Speaker: Kizito Kalima – “Z”
Kizito Kalima (“Z”) is 36 years old and has lived in the United States for 19 years. He has spoken in front of the UN in New York about the Rwandan tragedy where he was hunted down but miraculously was not killed. He will share his inspirational life’s journey and a powerful message of love, forgiveness and determination intertwined with humor! His non-profit organization called Choose to Forgive helps Rwandan refugees assimilate into the US, and create an awareness about the refugee situation here in Indianapolis. He is especially trying to reach the refugee youth who, without help and directions, can easily be lured by gangs to join them down the wrong path. Z has been meeting with these youth and any refugee on a regular basis to help them learn how to become productive citizens in the community.
His website is www.choosetoforgive.org and his organization is called Peace Center for Forgiveness and Reconciliation. He is full of charisma and character and will be a great Advent message.

GC’s Teens 4 Life: 40 Days for LIFE!
Please join us to pray for those without a voice, the most innocent, the unborn! Teens, parents, grandparents, families – all are welcome to unite with us in prayer!
Pope Francis has expressed his public support for the peaceful pro-life ministry of 40 Days for Life. In a letter sent through his Secretariat of State, the pope said he “greatly appreciates the dedicated work” that the group, which leads people to pray in front of abortion facilities, has undertaken “to promote respect for the lives of all unborn children.”

11th Grade College Info Night
Wednesday, November 18th, 7:00 p.m. in the Cafetorium
At Guerin Catholic High School, we are committed to helping your family in the process of the successful matriculation of your child to a college or university of his or her choice. As part of the process, we strongly encourage all parents and guardians of juniors and the students themselves to come to this upcoming 11th Grade College Information Night.
The information presented at this meeting is critical to help guide our juniors through the college search, selection, and application process. We believe a student’s junior year is the most important for success of the student’s college counseling experience. Therefore we hope every junior student and parent will make every effort to attend this evening’s program.
