Day 38: Thanks to Bishop Zubik, St. Ferdinand RL Group, Elk County RL, St. Catherine Laboure Parish, Dedicated Individual Volunteers and Team Members!

Are you the same person you were back on Ash Wednesday? I hope I’m not…I hope that in these 40 days of Lent and our campaign that I’ve learned a little, grown a little, changed a little. But it won’t mean much if I go back to “business as usual” on Day 41. I’ve seen

Day 34: Thanks to Blessed Trinity Parish and the faithful for showing up

What happens when we don’t show up? Did you ever wonder what happens when we don’t show up outside Planned Parenthood on abortion days? Now we know. It broke my heart to read Shae’s message. If only someone had been there… Let’s hope the next time we are there. Are you hearing the call to
