IN HONOR OF RESPECT LIFE MONTH, HERE ARE SOME WAYS YOUR FAMILY CAN GET INVOLVED:
LIFE CHAINS: Life Chain is a peaceful and prayerful public witness of pro-life individuals who stand for 60 minutes praying for the nation and for an end to abortion. It is a visual statement (with non-graphic posters) of solidarity by the Christian community that abortion kills children and that the Church supports the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. Life Chains are held on Respect Life Sunday. Locations and times can be found at http://www.dioceseofjoliet.org/life/sectioncontent.php?secid=16
WHITE MASS: This Mass will be held at the Cathedral on Sunday, October 19, at 11:00 a.m. All health care professionals are cordially invited to be present and receive a special blessing from Bishop Joseph Siegel. The White Mass celebrates those who serve as guardians and servants of human life: physicians, nurses, health care providers, along with their families and friends. Refreshments will follow in the Commons. RSVP Respect Life Ministry at ((815-221-6251) or email@example.com.
40 DAYS FOR LIFE: From Wednesday, September 23 to Sunday, November 2, the 40 Days for Life campaign will be observed. It is a community-based campaign that draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program: prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil, and community outreach.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Volunteers are needed to pray at Abortion Clinics in the Diocese of Joliet. For full details follow the link for that location:
