The Courage To Be Chaste In a Self-Obsessed Culture
February 23, 2023 at 6:00 PM
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Parish, 12001 69th Street E. Parrish, FL 34219
Young people today live in a digital driven world with many social media platforms. They leave the safety of being chaste, to live the supposed freedom & false lies that promiscuity promises. Pam Stenzel, an international speaker, feels it’s important that young people hear straight talk…about living an un-chase life, its consequences, and the life and death choices they meet every single day.
