October is Respect Life Month

Please prayerfully consider joining one or both of these activities in support of Respect Life Month.

Sunday, October 7
Please join us in a peaceful witness of prayer by attending the annual LIFE CHAIN next Sunday, October 7th from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. During the Life Chain, hundreds of people will line Dodge Street between 60th and 90th Streets, praying in defense of life and in support of women.  Members of our parish will be praying on the north side of Dodge Street between 88th and 90th Street in front of American National Bank. Signs bearing a pro-life message will be available after the Masses next weekend, or you may select a sign at the site. You may also pray without a sign. Praying is the most powerful thing we can do to build a culture of life.

September 26—November 4
Please join us in 40 days of prayer and fasting as we seek God’s favor to turn hearts and minds from a culture of death to a culture of life. We ask His healing for all of those whose lives have been touched by abortion. Our parish will be providing a prayerful presence outside the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, just north of 93rd and Maple on Saturday, October 13th at 9 am.  Please make a gift of sacrificial prayer and join other parishioners for an hour of prayer.

May we show by our words and actions
that every human life
is cherished and chosen;
We pray to the Lord.

May we build a culture of life
by embracing our mission
as messengers of God's love;
We pray to the Lord.
