This saddens me. I attended Girl’s State in Alabama in the 60’s and as a counselor later. We always had religious services, but back then, there weren’t really many Catholics in the area and this situation never came up. However, knowing the women who ran it in Alabama, I feel they would have made some type of effort to accommodate the young lady. I hate she is missing such a great opportunity because it is an experience I wouldn’t take anything for.
I missed out on Boys’ State in KS because the county sheriff raided the local Legion post and took out the one-armed bandits that supplied the funds to sponsor students to the program.
