Please continue to pray throughout these 40 Days for an end to abortion and the culture of death we now are living in.  We are praying for the special intention of the conversion of the abortionists and staff and that the Greenville clinic closes on or before Dec 12th, the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

 

Rosaries for Life – Please pray the rosary throughout the month of October for pro life intentions.  Our deanery asks that we all pray for those life intentions we personally find most pressing in our society – abortion, euthanasia, death penalty, embryonic stem cell research, acceptance of poor prenatal diagnoses, etc.  Let us know when you pray for any intention which seeks to build a respect for all human life in our nation and world by completing the Rosaries for Life form available near the baskets in the back of the church during the month of October.
