We apologize for the delay in not sending messages to you in a timely manner through the 40 Days for Life/Norristown website. This year the format has changed and permission was required from our Campaign Director, Pina McLaughlin to access our training resources. We are still getting accustomed to navigating the updated format.
A Big Shout Out and Thank You to all the Respect for Life Coordinators for signing up your parish during the Fall 40 Days for Life/Norristown. Please contact Helen Walker, Church Coordinator at Helenwalker115@gmail.com or call 215-620-9918 to add your church’s perspective day or any additions and changes to the date.
The “Unplanned Movie” was an amazing blessing for the pro-life movement at the box office but more importantly, a tremendous response to join a 40 Days for Life near your location, Mom’s keeping their babies, Volunteers at Crisis Pregnancy Centers, Sidewalk Counseling, PP workers leaving and being helped by Abby Johnson’s Ministry “Then There Were None,” Silent No More Awareness testimonies, The Survivor’s of Abortion testimonies, especially with the infanticide horror, and women and men finding reconciliation through Rachel’s Vineyard. Praise God! Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Unborn and the Americas, Please Pray for Us!

“Christ has no body now on earth but yours,
No hands but yours, no feet but yours,
Yours are the eyes through which to look out Christ’s compassion to the world,
Yours are the feet with which he is to go out doing good;
Yours are the hands with which he is to bless men now.”
