We are living in dark and sinful times, the likes of which we have never seen since the birth of our nation. The Lord’s call to the Church to pray and repent of our sins and the sins of America has brought Christians together across America.
On Saturday, September 19th, Catholics and Evangelicals from Bucks County gathered on the grounds of Plumstead Christian School, Plumsteadville, PA to answer His call for this Solemn Gathering.
“…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
“Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:19-20.
The following clergy and lay leaders shared messages from the Lord: Pastor Doug Dwyer, Addisville Reformed Church, Pastor Lou Prontnicki, Maple Glenn Fellowship Church, Pastor Bill Devlin, Infinity Bible Church, Bronx, NY, Lay Leader Michael Dougherty, St. Martin’s Catholic Church, and Dr. Rob Arner, Washington Crossing UMC.
We want to acknowledge Rev. Chuck Wilson, Pastor of New Hope Community Church, for his essential help in planning the Solemn Gathering.
Todd Bunce of New Hope Community Church lead the worship team in praise and prayerful hymns following each message shared by the speakers.
Joe Simon of New Hope Community Church closed the Solemn Gatheringwith a selection of the following scriptures and prayer:
“…be blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and perverse generation, in which you shine as lights in the world as you hold forth the word of life.“ Philippians 2:15-16
“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying: “Whom shall I send? Who will go for Us?” And I said: “Here am I. Send me!” The Lord replied: “Go and tell this people, ‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.“ Isaiah 6:8-9
Lord may we truly be humbled before you and acknowledge OUR PART in the devastation of our nation in past days, weeks, months, and years. As Your people truly humbled before you, we should be responding daily to the conviction of your Spirit and dedicate ourselves to your purpose. Convict us to dedicate ourselves to genuine prayer guided by and according to your Word, acknowledging when we truly hear your voice, hear you speaking to us, in the Word we study each day. Only by truly trusting in you can we obtain the courage and accomplish the true purpose of the mission you give us. In that way we are truly seeking your face
I pray that we are not “those who hear but do not understand”. Help us to understand the sanctifying power and purpose of your discipline, necessary for a harvest of righteousness. Convict us to shine as lights of Truth and Righteousness into the darkness of the wickedness that we see in our nation today, wickedness that WE HAVE ALLOWED by previously hiding your light under a basket of our cowardice or apathy or faithlessness. Lord we vow today to turn from these wicked ways.
Lord it is not enough to be individually accountable, convict us to be accountable and confrontational to one another in the most Holy faith.

Below is a message from Rachel Hayes, Leader of Forty Days for Life, Chester County, PA.
September 22nd (6pm – 7pm) Kickoff at St. Agnes Parish, 233 West Gay Street, West Chester (parking behind the church). Join us for a time of prayer, praise, and testimony to the beauty and sanctity of Life. Who doesn’t need to be freshly encouraged to persevere and not give up hope as we launch into our 27th campaign of peacful vigil to save lives and end abortion in West Chester?
40 days for Life begins September 23 covering weekdays and Saturdays, 7am -7pm. I really need your help to get these hours filled as soon as possible. I know we all have very busy lives filled with service, work, school, and caring for our families, but if each person on this list committed to just one hour of vigil and encouraged one family member/friend to do the same, we could have the entire vigil fully covered with two people present & praying throughout. We can do this!
Do you have one hour to give from Sept. 23rd – Oct. 31st?
PLEASE visit our campaign page and commit NOW for an hour of vigil anytime throughout the campaign and/or sign up through your church’s vigil coordinator.
October 17th Midway Baby Donation Dropoff. Email to follow with specific needs, and information will also be posted to our campaign page.
THANK YOU in advance for stepping up to be a voice for the voiceless!

Below is an urgent appeal from March for Life Action.
When pro-abortion judges are nominated to the Federal Courts or the Supreme Court, they purposefully block legislation meant to both protect women’s health and care for pre-born babies. The next president will likely have the opportunity to nominate multiple justices to the Federal and Supreme Courts, giving them the chance to totally reshape the judiciary. Make no mistake – the courts are in the balance — and should be a critically motivating factor for voters in the upcoming election.
President Trump recently released. Many of the 44 potential nominees, if successfully confirmed, will give legalized abortion the proper judicial scrutiny it deserves.
President Trump has been able to nominate and confirm over 200 federal judges! These judges are by and large loyal to the Constitution, not seeking to legislate from the bench, but to interpret cases according to our founding document.
The Biden/Harris campaign is endorsed and financially supported by the abortion industry. Their platform supports the extreme position of abortion until birth, paid for by tax dollars.
Will Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominees protect the most vulnerable, the unborn, or will they side with the abortion industry? Will his nominees protect religious liberty and conscience rights or try to force nuns (and the March for Life) to pay for abortion inducing drugs and devices?
Americans have the right to know the kinds of judges Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will nominate to the Supreme Court.
The role of the Senate to “advise and consent” is crucial for any SupremeCourt nomination. Only when we know who Biden and Harris would nominate can the American public judge for themselves about the future of the judicial system, and their vote in November.
Tom McClusky President, March for Life Action
P.S. If your Senator is pro-life, your message today will instead be in support of the pro-life nominees that President Trump has named. It is important to thank them as well for the good work they do! March for Life Action.
The following message is from David Simon, Philadelphia Field Director of CatholicVote.
Check out this quick 30-second video that CatholicVote just released last night. It very quickly and succinctly sums up how Joe Biden has abandoned his Catholic values by promising to FORCE taxpayers to pay for abortions through abolishing the Hyde Amendment. Share it far and wide!
Yesterday Pennsylvania had our highest number of calls so far for the whole year, clocking in at 1145 calls! This is fantastic!
I am challenging everyone to keep up this momentum and push the bar even higher! Let’s blow everyone away by how quickly Pennsylvania can get through these calls. We all know that in the Northeast, we do it best! Let’s prove that to the rest of the CV teams across the country by making Pennsylvania the gold standard for CampaignSidekick. CampaignSidekick calls are way quicker and easier than you might think. You can blow through 100 calls in less than one hour total!
Don’t forget, from now until election day, our top 5 callers of the week that make at least 200 calls per week will get a $25 Visa gift card! In addition, this week ONLY, our top caller who makes at least 1,000 calls will get a $100 Amazon gift card!
Until we finish the survey phase, we are unable to move into any other Get Out the Vote efforts, all of which are crucial to our goal of turning out the 201,000+ Mass attending Catholics that did not vote in 2016!
Also wanted to share this picture from Lord of the Rings that one of our wonderful volunteers, Jane, had sent to me. This election is our chance to make our own stand as Catholics against the dark forces that seek to rip apart our nation and our liberties.
Sincerely Yours in Christ, David Laurence Simon Philadelphia Area Field Director CatholicVote.org (609)-290-1469 firstname.lastname@example.org
Below is an important message for all Pennsylvanians who believe in the sanctity of life. Please take the action requested by Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation. Your phone call and email can stop assisted suicide from becoming law in Pennsylvania.
Dear Pro-Life Leaders,
Please call and email your state Senator with this important message: “I want to prevent assisted suicide in Pennsylvania. Please pass Shawn’s Law—House Bill 1827.”
House Bill 1827 increases the penalties for those who try to assist individuals under age 18 or people with intellectual disabilities to die by suicide. The bill passed the House and is now pending in the state Senate Judiciary Committee.
The following news article was authored by John Wesley Reid and was published in the Christian Post.
At 5 a.m. on Saturday, pro-lifers in Baltimore and with Students for Life of America gathered to paint “black preborn lives matter,” covering the street with the large letters outside of a Planned Parenthood facility. The group called it a “success” after no arrests were made.
Police officers arrived on scene during the painting process on N. Howard St. in Baltimore. While they contacted the supervisor of the event to get more information, they did not arrest anyone or order anyone to vacate the area.
The officers were given shirts with “black preborn lives matter” printed on them, which they posed with for a photo.
During a similar pro-life painting event last month in Washington, D.C., two members of the SFLA community were arrested for using sidewalk chalk on a walkway outside of a Planned Parenthood. The chalk they were using had been approved by D.C. Metropolitan Police department before and the area they were drawing on was not Planned Parenthood property.
SFLA said “legal action is underway” regarding the Washington arrests.
Before Saturday, SFLA sent a letter to Baltimore Mayor Bernard Young requesting a permit for the event. The permit was never granted or denied, an SFLA spokesperson told The Christian Post. The letter addressed other paintings of expression supported by Mayor Young and demanded that the same permission be granted for SFLA.
“City officials intervened to allow a Black Lives Matter artwork to continue to be displayed. We ask that our message of hope and a future – BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER – receive the same support and respect in Baltimore. We are asking you, Mayor Young, to respond promptly to our permit with permission to add our message in favor of the dignity of Black preborn life to the public forum of the city streets, which you have opened to others,” the letter stated.
The letter further suggested that to allow some forms of protected speech and not others is unmerited discrimination:
“You must allow SFLA and FDF to paint its BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER message. Your original decision to paint ‘Black Lives Matter’ on the street may very well be government speech. However, your decision to allow private citizens to paint additional messages such as ‘Defund the Police’ and ‘Black Trans Lives Matter’ and to intervene on behalf of a public display of another’s speech indicates that public areas are now an open forum for free speech. You are not permitted to discriminate on the basis of viewpoint in making determinations relating to public assemblies in public fora. The message of the preborn will not be silenced.”
“The Democratic Party unequivocally supports abortion on-demand, up until the moment of birth, and even infanticide — leaving babies to die after failed abortions.”
Steve Ertelt of Life News wrote an article that should be of great interest to those who are voting on November 3rd. If you believe in the sanctity of life, your vote for our pro-life president is the only choice. Terry Noble, Voices for Life
President Donald Trump released a letter to pro-life Americans today promising to continue fighting against abortion during his second term in office, saying he would “fight in the trenches for unborn children and their mothers.”
As Joe Biden caves to the radical pro-abortion left and works to implement nationwide, taxpayer-funded abortion until birth, President Trump has stood strong in his pro-life commitments and his letter reminds pro-life Americans what he’s done during the last four years to fight for life.
President Trump is the most pro-life president in American history, according to many pro-life organizations that have endorsed his re-election and with four more years in the White House he says he will continue to transform the federal judiciary by appointing judges who recognize the sanctity of life and finally defeat the Democrat-backed abortion industry.
“As I seek re-election this November, I need your help in contrasting my bold pro-life leadership with Joe Biden’s abortion extremism. The Democratic Party unequivocally supports abortion on-demand, up until the moment of birth, and even infanticide — leaving babies to die after failed abortions. Joe Biden’s embrace of this extreme position is most evidenced by his support for taxpayer funding of abortion on-demand. Forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions is an abhorrent position that must be defeated at the ballot box. Joe Biden has doubled down on these positions with his selection of abortion extremist Kamala Harris as his running mate. With your help, I will win re-election, ensuring we have another four years to fight in the trenches for unborn children and their mothers.”
