Life Chain 3

Life Chain

Life Chain Sunday – Respect Life Sunday will be held on October 2 from 2-3:30pm. Please join other pro-life Christians as we stand in peaceful prayer as public witnesses for life and against abortion.

St. Mary’s will stand in front of Bankers Trust, 3905 Merle Hay Road, north of Douglas Ave. and across from Merle Hay Mall. Come for all or part of the time for the 27th nationwide Life Chain.

40 Days for Life

This pro-life campaign is from September 25th to November 6th and encourages prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil for an end to abortion. St. Mary’s will “Kneel for Life” in church in front of the Blessed Sacrament on Friday, Oct. 7 from 8:30am to 8:30pm. We will “Stand for Life” on October 7th at Planned Parenthood, 1000 E. Army Post Road from 11:00am to 3:00pm, and at Planned Parenthood, 10534 New York Ave. in Urbandale from 3:00pm to 7:00pm. Two people are needed in each time slot. Sign up sheets, maps, and signs to hold will be in the gathering area. October 7th is the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. How fitting!

About the Pro Life Committee

The Pro Life Committee is dedicated to the sanctity of all life, especially the unborn child whose lives are ended by abortion. Annually, we sponsor a Cradle of Life, which is a collection of baby and maternity clothes and monetary gifts. These are given to local pregnancy centers to help women as an alternative to abortion.

Also we are the coordinating committee for St. Mary’s for Life Chain, which is held on the first Sunday of October, which is Respect Life Sunday. On an as-needed basis, we coordinate the political effort to let our views be known to our elected officials. A pro-life Rosary is said every Sunday before the 9:00 AM Mass.
