The first Saturday in December was an interesting one downtown outside planned parenthood. Many of the faithful came to pray and witness to life. There were five sidewalk counselors, the Choices Pregnancy Services mobile sonogram, many of the Saturday morning regulars plus several of the faithful who participated our Fall Campaign and felt a call to come back.
What made this Saturday interesting was there were a lot of clinic workers/escorts in their pink vests in their usual positions but then a group came out of the clinic with a banner that stated “Health Care Happens Here.”. One of the Saturday regulars thought it appropriate to show what their version of “health care” really is and placed a sign, like an exclamation point, at the end of the banner. And as the expression goes “a picture is worth a 1,000 words”.
Just a reminder, the 40 Days for Life Christmas vigil will be Saturday morning December 19. It is an informal vigil so there is no sign up and you can come and go as you please. Stay for a few minutes or for awhile if you can. Song sheets will be available to sing along with the Angels. We are asking you to come between 7 am and 11 am.
I wish you peace and joy, and a Merry Christmas,
