Catholic World News - June 10, 2013
By unanimous votes in the both the state house and senate, Louisiana lawmakers have approved legislation related to student-initiated prayer gatherings at public schools.
“Upon the request of any public school student or students, the proper school authorities may permit students to gather for prayer in a classroom, auditorium, or other space that is not in use” before or after school, according to the legislation.
The legislation also permits school personnel, parents, and invited community members to “attend and participate in” the prayer gatherings.
