In observance of April as the Sexual Abuse Prevention Month, Santa Barbara Catholic School daily prayed the petitions and Prayer for Healing Victims/Survivors of Abuse. An altar was set in the cafeteria to commemorate the victims. On April 26, 2017, the school community wore light blue ribbons, and observed Silent Wednesday the whole day in the hallways and in the cafeteria to show their solidarity with victims of abuse. Shown in picture are the 7th grade students leading the Prayer for Healing at the altar: L-R: Arvin Fermo, Audrey Edusada, Juliana Lacson, Francesca Garcia and Ayezah Bagro.
