Parishioners For Life

Parishioners For Life—Motivating Members to Help End Abortion

A Mother’s poem to her child lost by abortion

“Forgive me.  I am sorry my baby, my little one. You were killed by the one who loved you the most. For the months I carried you, Flesh of my flesh, flesh of his flesh. I felt your every move, I could feel you ….But I was too young, I did not know. Your father, my little one, did not know you. You are a boy, a man like him. I call you Stewart William, like him. You have curly, brown hair like him. Your face is his face. I love you like I love him. I have no excuses. I saved you from a world. Where babies are killed by the ones who should love them the most. You are safe with God now. If I should ever have another child, You must remember that I will always love. You the most, my first baby. Sleep well, my little one.”  For healing after abortion, contact www.RachelsVineyard.org.

Thanks to you, our parishioners, Sacred Heart Parish has surpassed all of our goals!

Sacred Heart of Jesus Church is at  131% 

Belaire Cove Chapel is at 126%   

St. Joseph Church is at 141%

Now that we have reached our goal, each church will keep 50% of the monies collected past their goal.

Campaign Prayer:

Heavenly Father, give us the grace to build your Kingdom in our Diocese. We can only accomplish this noble task by allowing You to expand our hearts.

Grant us compassionate hearts for the poor and suffering among us, hopeful hearts for the men now in seminary, grateful hearts to provide care for the well-being of our retired priests, and zealous hearts for the formation of our Catholic college students.

As we look to the future and the celebration of the Centennial of our Diocese, we want to give You our faithful hearts. It is only with faithful hearts that our Diocesan campaign will bear fruit and assist You in the building up of Your Kingdom.

With Mary our Mother, and moved by the Holy Spirit, we make this prayer through Your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We entrust our humble efforts to You, with plea for success, as we reach out to those who need us.

Amen!
