Respect Life Sunday.

The first Sunday of October (Oct. 2nd this year) is observed as Respect Life Sunday. As Catholics, we are called to cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable, from the beginning of life to its end, and at every point in between.  Join us for a walk around the block starting at the Rosary Garden at 3:30 p.m.  If weather is inclement, we will meet in the Chapel instead.

Ongoing Events:

Spiritual Adoption

This program is an opportunity to pledge a daily prayer for nine months for a baby who is in danger of abortion.  This special prayer is found on the Spiritual Adoption Prayer cards found in the entry of the church on the card which you can put the name of the "baby" you are praying for.  For the parents of the baby, please pray a daily Hail Mary.  Pray that God in His great mercy will grant the parents the courage to once more imitate the lives of Mary and Joseph.  They gave a humble yes to bring forth the life of Jesus, our Savior, in a way that was defiant to the wisdom of their time.

It is an opportunity to educate others about the development of the pre-born baby.  At the end of nine months, to align with the Mother's Day timeframe, we will be collecting baby bottles and diapers/supplies to donate to area pregnancy resources.  This collection is a visible means of imitating the Magi by providing assistance in the form of a donated baby item.  

Our prayers CAN make a difference between whether a baby will be born … or aborted.  Our prayers can also be a form of spiritual support for both of the parents.  Please share the love of life given to you by the Lord of all life and join in spiritually adopting a baby.
