Holy Hour for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children 

Monday, January 22, 2024 – 7:00 PM,  Church

“If everyone prayed one hour of Adoration a week, there would be no abortion.” Saint Mother Teresa

We will mourn the 51st anniversary of the Supreme Court Decision of Roe vs. Wade which legalized abortion in the United States.

The Holy Hour will begin with a rose procession for life. This procession includes one person born each year since abortion was made legal in the United States.  Each person represents all the children aborted during their year. The roses they carry are an offering of remembrance.  We use the color red to signify love and devotion. Our expectant mother represents 2021 and carries a white rose; the color white signifies innocence and purity and our hope to see an end to abortion in our lifetime.  Please join us in this hour of prayer for all of the unborn not protected since this decision in our country and pray for an end to abortion in our world.

 If you were born from 1973 through 2023, we need you to represent your birth year in the rose procession for life.  Please sign up for yourself, your children, and your grandchildren and become part of this procession.   To sign up to carry a rose, please use the Sign-up Genius link at:

Mother’s Day Weekend 

Thank you all for working the last two weekends on the crib drive!  I know it was a couple very busy few weekends with graduations and first Holy Communion and Mother’s Day.  What special times and blessings!! T hanks for making time to help out!

 With the crib being just outside Corbett Hall (because of the weather) we did not quite have the donations we usually do for this event.  We only got about 1/3 of the usual number of things donated. We use these gifts and gift cards all year long for what we do with the ministry. If you know anyone who still wants to donate something they can do so and drop if off at the parish or they can donate through this QR code. 

Here is a list of things we use most that we did not get many of- For instance we only got 2 diaper bags. We give away the backpack diaper bags so that would be a great donation. 
We only had a couple of the baby bath products which are always in use and demand, so another item needed.  We only received two Bottle sets as well.   Any of the items listed below are good to help with if you have not donated and want to. 

Thanks to all of you who gave items!!!

National Life Chain 

The National Life Chain

Sunday, October 1st,  from 3:00 – 4:00 PM,  we meet in the parking lot at 2:45 PM.

The first Sunday of October (Oct. 1st this year) is observed as Respect Life Sunday in the Catholic Church.   As Catholics, we are called to cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable, from conception to its natural end.

We participate in this nationally coordinated event,  where churches all across the country will stand in silent prayer for one hour to honor the sanctity of life.   Please join our parish in taking a stand for life on the sidewalks in front of our church.

The Knights of Columbus will provide a free light lunch in the parking lot before heading to the sidewalk to pray.   Families are welcomed and encouraged as we stand to honor the dignity of all life from conception to natural death.  Signs are provided and if needed you may bring a chair to sit in if you cannot stand for an hour.  We invite you to join in this wonderful stand for life.

Holy Hour for Life 

Monday, October 2, 2023  7:00 PM – Chapel

Please join us for one hour before the Blessed Sacrament to pray for life.  The hour will be led by Deacon Leo Gahafer.  Hear our special guest speaker Jamie Oreffice.  Jamie and her husband Andy have four children, two of whom are adopted.  Jamie will share their adoption journey filled with questions, faith, fear and doubts, but most of all overwhelming joy, that led them to their two youngest children. Jamie and Andy are
passionate about adoption and have started the Catholics Adopt Project to help others realize the
gift of adoption.

Life at all stages is a gift from God—whether it is the life of the unborn in the womb or life outside the womb for those suffering from disabilities, abuse, or neglect.  During this Holy Hour in front of the Blessed Sacrament, we will pray for the vast number of babies not allowed to be born, for the poor whose lives are made difficult, for men and women who are victims of brutal violence, for the elderly and the sick killed by indifference or out of misguided mercy.  Our prayers may lift their spirits and perhaps even bring about a change in their condition, thereby bringing them peace.

We will pray aloud the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for their welfare and then continue in silent prayer for the remainder of the hour.  If a priest or deacon is present he will offer Benediction with the Blessed Sacrament.

Most everyone knows of someone who is in need of prayer.—whether it be family, friends, or acquaintances.  Please join us whenever you can during this important Holy Hour to bring them consolation and peace.
