For the last twenty years, Generation Life has changed the hearts and minds of half a million young people throughout the greater Philadelphia area and beyond.
On a beautiful fall evening at The Inn at Villanova, 200 supporters gathered to reminisce, celebrate, and hope to equip the organization to continue to fight for love and life.
Kim Savage opened the evening by sharing how far the organization has come since its humble beginnings on the campus of Villanova University, which later grew into sharing chastity in the classrooms, early involvements outside of abortion facilities, and in time beach outreaches.
Those gathered saw a few videos that recapped the last twenty years of the organization while also hearing from past and current staff and volunteers what the organization has done and meant to them.
Fr. Joe Zaleski, the president of the organization, has asked everyone to continue donating to the organization as an anonymous donor wishes to match every money donated to the organization in the near future.

Despite a taste of summer in the air on Saturday, June 5th, 500 pro-lifers gathered for a call to action while mourning the thousands of lives lost to abortion in West Chester, PA a 45-minute drive from Philadelphia.
The day began with Mass at St. Agnes Church near the heart of town. Bishop John McIntyre was celebrant homilist for the Mass for Life. In his homily, he reflected on his visit to the 9/11 memorial in New York and how the 3,000 lives lost there was no different that the daily murder of the unborn in our society today. He reminded everyone that life from womb to tomb is precious and made perfect in the eye of God.
After the celebration of Mass, the pro-lifers peacefully march around town. The first stop was the Planned Parenthood facility.
Following the brief rally and prayer at Planned Parenthood, everyone processed to the courthouse in the middle of town.
The speakers were deep, personal, and cover topics that are affecting the culture of life.
Overall, the day was filled with beauty and love.

Please see the email below with details on the Generation Life Golf Outing fundraiser. While there are many avenues in the pro-life movement: legislative, prayerful, pregnancy center donations, public rallies, etc., Generation Life’s mission is to get to the root cause of abortion. Their goal is to educate the younger generations about chastity and try to stop the want or need for an abortion. They meet young people where they are and proclaim this message. Gen Life stands outside of abortion centers, speaks at pro-life rallies and most importantly, is a younger voice for the unborn.If you are an armchair golfer, then consider participating through a donation. If you were impressed by Phil Mickelson’s recent PGA Championship at the age of 50 and want to get back out on the links, then here’s your chance! Either way, please support Generation Life. It is through their ministry that true change will take place.
Dear friend, This week we are not only preparing for our final talks of the school year, but for our most exciting event outside the classroom – the bi-annual Pro-Life Golf Outing!
