40Days for Life Campaign-Respect Life Mass

Respect Life Mass - March 15, 10:00 am Mass. Some of our greatest freedoms are of religion and of speech. With these freedoms come the right to express the importance of Respect for Life. As you know, we are in the 40 Days for Life during Lent.  In this period we would like to bring to focus the importance of every life from conception to natural death.  This is a time we can pray for the children in the womb, that they may be protected and welcomed into the Christian community by baptism. We can pray that those troubled by their pregnancy may have the grace to trust in God's will. And, we can pray for strong marriages rooted in the Lord, and open to the gift of new life. As we go through our daily activities we can keep these thoughts and prayers in our minds and hearts. God Bless You - Respect Life Ministry

Our church will be participating in the 40 days for Life campaign by volunteering to pray in front of Planned Parenthood on Monday, March 23, from 8am-8pm.  We are looking for volunteers to sign up for at least one hour to peacefully pray in front of the building.  Parishioners can contact Mary Mac Gittinger at mmgittinger@gvtc.com for more information.
