Open Hours – We Need YOU!

Pro-Life Wisconsin Spring Awards Dinner
I wish you could have heard the excitement in the voice of the prayer warrior who called to report that a baby was saved today at Planned Parenthood!
She told of a car that drove in and parked near the entrance but none of the four occupants got out. After an hour or more, they finally decided to leave. But as they were leaving, they paused at the driveway to give some wonderful news. The young mother in the back seat called out happily, “I’m not doing it! I’m not doing it!” The prayer warrior exclaimed, “There is much excitement here….and tears of joy! I can see how important it is for us to be out here!”
Glory to God in the highest….we give you thanks for your great glory!
Actually, God spared TWO lives today – that of the innocent unborn child and the preyed-upon mother. THIS is why we need you to take an hour and be out there, to pray and sacrifice for the vulnerable, the victims. Easter shows us that death has been conquered. Let us pray that the Easter message will give us the confidence and perseverance to be a witness for life.

What a beautiful Good Friday morning we had last week as about 200 prayer warriors joined Father Rick Heilman and the Knights of Divine Mercy in the Stations of the Cross at Planned Parenthood. Father Rick brought relics of the True Cross and St. Faustina which were held up in prayer at each Station. We are very grateful to Father Rick, the KDM, Mary Ann Croft, and all who attended; it was truly a holy Good Friday morning of prayer! Go to vigilforlife.org to see some photos of this special event.
