"I was just thrilled," Martin said. The group consists of seventh and eighth grade stu- dents. "That age group is not quite so involved" as the older students, Martin said. The response from the parish has been wonderful. At the first fund-raiser, the students raised over $400. "We had a "Pennies for Life" fund-raiser. At each Mass, the students gave a talk, and asked for money to sponsor their trip to Washington. We asked each person to give a penny for each year of their life. Most people gave a dollar, and we raised $435.01." Five students and two adults from St. Wendel will be attend- ing the Washington, D.C. March for Life. There are also active Teens for Life organizations in Dubois County, and at Mater Dei and Memorial high schools, both in Evansville. Members of Teens for Life at Mater Dei High School, Evansville, place 508 white crosses in the front of their school. Each cross symbolizes 10 abortions which occur daily in the United States.
