Category: General Memorial Service for the Unborn

Sun, 1/19

Join us for the annual Memorial Service for the Unborn on Sunday, January 19, 2014.

This time of prayer and music is an opportunity to remember the more than 57 million children who have lost their lives to abortion in the 41 years since the passage of the U.S. Supreme Court decisions Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton.

The keynote speaker will be Rebecca Kiessling. Conceived in rape and targeted for abortion, Kiessling has a compelling, personal story of why there ought not to be exceptions to abortion in the cases of rape and incest. An attorney and mother of five, Kiessling is also director of Save the 1, a national organization that advocates for prolife policies without exceptions.

Special music will be provided by West Catholic High School, under the direction of Darren LaPrise.

Diapers and baby wipes will be collected for donation to local crisis pregnancy centers. A freewill offering will be taken.
