Our prayers and God’s mercy are like two buckets in a well; while one ascends, the other desends. ~Arthur Hopkins
Thank you for continuing to pray for an end to abortion in Pittsburgh! God is hearing our prayers and we will see His outpouring of mercy!
Peggy and I were met by the first shift of the always supportive First Evangelical Free Church of McKeesport – Pastor Kirk and Dean. Sidewalk Advocate Steve was there, as well as faithful Anthony. Pastor Kirk started us out with a beautiful prayer and then moved to a position where he continued to pray. While Dean paced across the front, we clustered at the other side and prayed the Sorrowful mysteries of the Rosary. So, we had the yellow arch on the sidewalk covered with prayer. One gentleman stopped by and caught the last mystery with us. He tries to touch base often to join in with the prayers. That was nice – and encouraging!
There didn’t appear to be much business this morning, only a few ladies entered. Not many accepted info. It seems that they must be coached beforehand to remain stoic, look forward heading toward the doors and ignore any outside interference.
That doesn’t stop us from trying to get through to them! They still have ears that can hear. May we be hearts, hands, feet, and VOICES for Our Lord who dearly loves each one of them!
The 9 – 11 shift went very well. A fella, Phil McLaughlin, from my parish, St. Aidan, stood in for Beth. The Free Evangelical Church from McKeesport was present with several members.
It wasn’t a very busy day today. It was just Elsie and I for most of the shift, with a couple of people who stopped by to pray on their lunch break.
We prayed all four mysteries of the Rosary. Dolores and Michael prayed with us the whole time. We were blessed to have Fr. Chris Donley and Fr. Joe Freedy from St. Mary’s at the Point in Pittsburgh join us for a decade, as well as their friend, John. Two other passersby, one named John, in the picture, stopped by as well. We were very blessed with a beautiful day and it was fairly peaceful. Kim

Once again I had beautiful weather to pray in front of Planned Parenthood. The sun was shining, the sky was blue and there were many faithful people to pray with! Thank you to Fr. John Sweeney who came with his group from the combined parishes of Saint Jude and Saint Matthew. They were very prayerful and we prayed the entire shift. Thank you to my husband Joe for coming with me! Tom arrived to take down the materials at the end of my shift. Thank you to Diane and Tom’s faithfulness and delivering the materials and removing them every day!
