The National Life Chain
Sunday, October 3rd, from 2:30-3:30 PM, we meet in the parking lot at 2:00 PM.
The first Sunday of October (Oct. 3 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 our 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. (Counted as service hours for teens.) We are asked to wear RED signifying Jesus’ blood and His sacrificial death as well as the bloodshed of the innocents.
