Prayer Vigil to be Held at Site of Vandalism at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Buckingham Township, Pennsylvania

As the abortion battle heats up and we get closer to Roe v Wade being reversed, we are seeing and experiencing hate crimes committed against pro-life advocates and pro-life materials at an ever increasing rate.

We have read stories on Life News about pro-life signs being destroyed, pro-life prayer warriors being assaulted and in our own area one of our state legislators even went so far as to verbally harass and dox a middle age woman and three teens.

This past weekend, vandals struck again at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church  in Central Bucks County, destroying many of the memorial crosses we have on our grounds at the corner of Route 413 and Cold Creamery Roads. These crosses are put up each year to remember the lives taken through abortion since 1973.

Our first reaction was shock, then anger.  How do we get past this anger?   Through prayer!

Please join us for a prayer vigil on Saturday, October 19th at 12 noon at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church at the same corner where our memorial crosses are placed. (map)

Our intention is two-fold, to prayer for the person(s) who committed this destruction, and to give witness to the community that, in the words of Father Pavone’s  Prayer to End Abortion, ‘we will never be silent, never be passive, never be forgetful of the unborn.  That we will commit ourselves to be active in the pro-life movement, and never stop defending life until all our brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice not just for some, but for all’.

Memorial Crosses for Those Lost Through Abortion

A special way to remember the children who have lost their lives through the tragedy of abortion is the Memorial Cross display at local churches.

The display consists of  small white crosses and a sign indicating that each cross represents one million abortions in our country since the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.

We have encountered many positive reactions to the crosses. Women who are mourning the loss of their own children have left flowers at the displays and one young man said that after seeing them, he and his girlfriend changed their minds about aborting their baby.

The Pro-Life Union will deliver the crosses to a church, install and then pick them up. They remain at a church for approximately one month.

Please consider asking your pastor to host the crosses at your church. They are a very powerful image and an education tool for passersby.

You can contact Anne  Hinnegan at the Pro-Life Union  by calling 215-885-8150  to arrange for these crosses to be delivered and placed at your church.  

The Pro-Life Union uses hope and love for families to serve and accompany others by offering education, alternatives, and public witness that eliminates the need for abortion and euthanasia in Greater Philadelphia.
