Many of the churches in the area in which I live (Southeast Pennsylvania) have memorials on their grounds in remembrance of all the babies lost through abortion in our country since 1973. The Respect Life Ministry of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Buckingham Township would like to do something a little different.
We hope to commission a statue where all mothers who have lost babies, either through abortion, stillbirth or miscarriage can come and pray. It will also be a place where mothers-to-be can come and pray for the life they are carrying within themselves for a healthy baby and a safe delivery.
This statue will have a place of honor in our prayer garden along with benches where you can sit, and reflect and pray.
We have invited the internationally renowned illustrator, author and sculptor of this statue, Joe DeVito to give a presentation on Sunday, November 17th in our Parish Life Center. (You can read Mr. DeVito’s biography here).
I hope that those who live in Bucks County and the surrounding area will join us on November 17th at 1:00 pm to find out about opportunities in which you can help us make our dream a reality. Please read about the statue and it’s symbolism below.
