October is the month of the Rosary as well as Respect Life month. Many rosary campaigns are currently ongoing to pray to end abortion as well as to end the current Covid-19 pandemic and to pray for our up-coming elections. Pray, Pray, Pray!

Dear Father Paul,
"Unexpected" does not always mean "unwanted." Jesus Himself was unexpected; Mary, betrothed but not yet married, could not have anticipated the angel Gabriel's salutation. "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you!" When asked to bear the Son of God, Mary responded, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be done to me according to your word."
Although Mary had to face many sorrows and hardships because of her "yes," Mary found consolation in the grace and love of God. Her song of praise and gratitude, spoken when visiting her relative Elizabeth, is found in Luke 1:46-55. "My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior…."
The women we serve do not bear the Christ Child as Mary did. However, the children in their wombs are made by God, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you" (Jeremiah 1:5). They are image-bearers, infused with dignity by their Creator. Through gentle and loving guidance, we work each day to help women to say "yes" to the new life growing within them. Their unexpected pregnancies become a cause for thanksgiving and joy, and many of our clients later reflect on how their child is their greatest blessing.
Through your donation, you bless us with the opportunity to continue helping women to say "yes" to life. Thank you for your generosity and your support of this ministry!
