March of the Surviving Youth (MOTSY)WELCOME TO THE PROLIFE TEEN EVENT of HOUSTON!
Come join TEENS as they gather for Mass, a rally, a concert and then a Jericho March outside the largest abortion facility in the USA (and the Western Hemisphere)!
This is a program started and maintained by teens for teensAnd now run under the guidance and approval of the Archdiocese of Galveston – Houston!
Catholic Organization Of Life
Invites all who could have been aborted – all who were born after 1/22/73, the date when abortion became legal here in the US.
They invite ALL who SURVIVED!
The initiative of a handful of teenagers (many of whom are now in their early 20’s) began praying outside of an abortion clinic. Each one of these teens realized that they themselves could have been aborted because abortion was legal even while they were still in their mother’s womb. They knew that when they looked at their fellow peers, there were people missing – people who already been killed because of abortion - under the twisted slogan of “choice.”
These teens stood and prayed right there in front of a Houston abortion clinic were even more babies were being killed and their mothers were being critically harmed. They prayed with the hope that the abortion clinic would close and any woman who was tempted to enter through the doors of the Planned Parenthood would have her heart touched by God and she would choose life for her unborn child!
Now, every year hundreds of teens united for a bi-annual prayer event (MOTSY and mini MOTSY) that they initiated.
The C.O.O.L. is now a 501(c)3 with the current teen president Peter Pinedo and vice presidents Chris Breuer and Mary Pinedo. They meet every month for Mass, prayer outside of Planned Parenthood and a meeting at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Houston.

Many teens do not realize what a huge impact they can have on those around them! Teens can have a powerful impact -- in some cases -- far beyond what adults can do without them. If you would like more information on getting a speaker at your parish please contact the COOL members or Houston Coalition for Life, we would each (in our own way) be happy to accommodate you!
