To increase the awareness of our parishioners and community of pro-life activities.
Letter and petition campaigns are frequently organized to encourage our elected officials to support pro-life legislation. On Respect Life Sunday, we participate in the “Rosary Chain”
Diocesan wide signature drive for Fr. Rene
Bishop Estevez with the recommendation of the Presbyterial Council is requesting a diocesan wide signature drive in all parishes before and after Mass to petition the public Prosecutor of Burke County, Georgia not to seek the death penalty for the assailant who shot Fr. Rene.
In his 1995 Declaration of Life Fr. Rene stated: “I hereby declare that should I die as a result of a violent crime, I request that the person or persons found guilty of homicide for my killing not be subject to or put in jeopardy of the death penalty under any circumstances no matter how heinous that crime or how much I may have suffered.”
The Signing of the Petition is requesting that the wishes of Father Rene Robert be respected.
National Night of Prayer for Life
8:00pm THURSDAY, DECEMBER 8TH UNTIL 1:00am FRIDAY
It was on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (then celebrated on December 9th ) that Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas and the Unborn, first appeared to St. Juan Diego. The National Night of Prayer for Life bridges these two feasts. This year we also look forward to the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima who appeared to the three children in 1917. The Fatima message continues to be the most relevant today! All Nations of the World are invited to participate, as we ask Our Blessed Mother to protect all Life, especially the Unborn. We have supported this prayerful night for two years. Its purpose is to pray specifically for: The Protection of Life, the Church, Religious Freedom, and the Family. It begins at 8:00pm and goes to 1:00am. The most important hour is between Midnight and 1:00am. This is the hour that all time zones will be in prayer simultaneously. It will include Adoration, Benediction, the Rosary, prayer to St. Michael and silent prayer.
