A Thank You Note from the National Life Center

We would like to thank all our wonderful friends at St. Mary's for participating in the Spiritual Adoption Baby Shower. The mothers who received these beautiful gifts were most grateful as are we. Your Parish is such a support to our Center and we thank you for all you do for the Babies

an life is a precious gift from God; that each person who receives this gift has responsibilities toward God, self and others; and that society, through its laws and social institutions, must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence."

  • Spiritual Adoption : For young mothers, especially those who are tempted to despair, that through the child they carry deep within, they might know hope and joy. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the pre-born child that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of being aborted, and help his or her mother have the support she needs to celebrate her call to motherhood. Amen. Some numbers they can call for help and support include: National Life Services : 1-800-848-LOVE orGood Counsel Homes at 800-723-8331. If you have lost a child through abortion, there is help, call Project Rachel Office at 866-474-2435
  • Pro-Life Committee : The Pro-Life Committee will meet on Wednesday, November 13 at 7:00pm in the rectory. All parishioners are invited to join us and share any thoughts or suggestions.
