Below is information concerning a free virtual workshop sponsored by the Culture Project International.
Exciting news for the Gianna Center of Philadelphia! Dr. Delia Larrauri and Barbara Rose, NP, were invited to give presentations for the Restore Culture Virtual Workshops sponsored by the Culture Project International.
The Restore Culture Workshop is a FREE three-day online event. During this weekend, attendees will be invited to learn from experts on various topics related to life, love, family, and holiness, but also to hear personal testimonies and unique experiences from people of all backgrounds. This event is perfect for educators and youth mentors who work with teens and young people. It is also a great resource for parents who want help in forming their children in some of the most sensitive and important truths of the Church on what it means to be human. Topics will include chastity, pornography, dating, marriage, parenting, healing and restoration, identity, and other social, cultural and family issues.
The Gianna Philly medical staff will be speaking on the topic of cycle health and, more specifically, which biomarkers indicate a need for evaluation by a physician – preferably one who practices NaproTECHNOLOGY. This will be in English and Spanish!
Additional speakers include Archbishop Perez, Jason and Crystalina Evert, Dr. Scott Hahn, Cristina Barba, Christopher West, Alexandria DeRose, NP, Dr. Ross Bones-Castro and many more!

Please accept our invitation to join in daily prayer during the national 40 Days for Life Campaign. Prayer is the most powerful weapon we possess to fight against the evils of our world, especially the evil of abortion.
Our Prayer Campaign starts on Wednesday, September 23rd and runs until Sunday, November 1st. We will post a prayer and meditation every day during this time to remind everyone to pray for an end to abortion, in our communities, in our country and throughout the world.
We pray for all who procure, promote or provide abortions. Our hope is that through our prayers and public witness, we will see an end to this violent act of aggression towards the most vulnerable in our society, the child in the womb.
“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

Last year, an Exorcist came to exorcise and bless our church property. Nothing creepy is going on, just felt it was way overdue.
He asked me to follow him as we walked the perimeter of the property. He instructed me to sprinkle rock salt (he felt it lasts longer) and, as I do that, to pray the Chaplet of St. Michael. WOW!! I thought to myself … “Why didn’t I think of this before?!” The Exorcist said anyone could do this at their own homes. You are calling upon St. Michael and the Nine Choirs of Angels while building a wall of protection around your home.
PRAYER CAMPAIGN BEGINS ON SEPTEMBER 20
September 29 is the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel. This is also the date of the first Presidential debate. I am asking everyone to pray the Chaplet of St. Michael from September 20 to September 28. On September 29, we will make an Act of Consecration to St. Michael the Archangel.
This amazing Chaplet of St. Michael is a powerful way to call upon St. Michael the Archangel along with the Nine Choirs of Angels, especially in your acts of spiritual warfare.
ABOUT CHAPLET OF ST. MICHAEL
This amazing Chaplet of St. Michael is a powerful way to call upon St. Michael the Archangel along with the Nine Choirs of Angels, especially in your acts of spiritual warfare. Sacred Scripture distinguishes nine such groupings: Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Dominations, Powers, Virtues, Principalities, Archangels and Angels (Isa. 6:2; Gen. 3:24; Col. 1:16; Eph. 1:21; Rom. 8:38). We are calling upon God’s mighty angels to join us in this battle.
The history of this Chaplet goes back to a devout Servant of God, Antonia d’Astonac, who had a vision of St. Michael. He told Antonia to honor him by nine salutations to the nine Choirs of Angels. St. Michael promised that whoever would practice this devotion in his honor would have, when approaching Holy Communion, an escort of nine angels chosen from each of the nine Choirs. In addition, for those who would recite the Chaplet daily, he promised his continual assistance and that of all the holy angels during life, and after death deliverance from purgatory for themselves and their relations.
If you do not have a chaplet, I highly recommend the “Combat Chaplet of St. Michael” I designed, based on the “Combat Rosary.” You can get yours HERE.
The Chaplet of St. Michael
O God, come to my assistance. O Lord, make haste to help me. Glory be to the Father, etc.
[Say one Our Father and three Hail Marys after each of the following nine salutations in honor of the nine Choirs of Angels]
1. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Seraphim may the Lord make us worthy to burn with the fire of perfect charity. Amen. 1 Our Father, 3 Hail Marys
2. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Cherubim may the Lord grant us the grace to leave the ways of sin and run in the paths of Christian perfection. Amen. 1 Our Father, 3 Hail Marys
3. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Thrones may the Lord infuse into our hearts a true and sincere spirit of humility. Amen. 1 Our Father, 3 Hail Marys
4. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Dominations may the Lord give us grace to govern our senses and overcome any unruly passions. Amen. 1 Our Father, 3 Hail Marys
5. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Virtues may the Lord preserve us from evil and falling into temptation. Amen. 1 Our Father, 3 Hail Marys
6. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Powers may the Lord protect our souls against the snares and temptations of the devil. Amen. 1 Our Father, 3 Hail Marys
7. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Principalities may God fill our souls with a true spirit of obedience. Amen. 1 Our Father, 3 Hail Marys
8. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Archangels may the Lord give us perseverance in faith and in all good works in order that we may attain the glory of Heaven. Amen. 1 Our Father, 3 Hail Marys
9. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Angels may the Lord grant us to be protected by them in this mortal life and conducted in the life to come to Heaven. Amen. 1 Our Father, 3 Hail Marys
Say one Our Father in honor of each of the following leading Angels: St. Michael, St. Gabriel, St. Raphael and our Guardian Angel.
O glorious prince St. Michael, chief and commander of the heavenly hosts, guardian of souls, vanquisher of rebel spirits, servant in the house of the Divine King and our admirable conductor, you who shine with excellence and superhuman virtue deliver us from all evil, who turn to you with confidence and enable us by your gracious protection to serve God more and more faithfully every day.
Pray for us, O glorious St. Michael, Prince of the Church of Jesus Christ, that we may be made worthy of His promises.
Almighty and Everlasting God, Who, by a prodigy of goodness and a merciful desire for the salvation of all men, has appointed the most glorious Archangel St. Michael Prince of Your Church, make us worthy, we ask You, to be delivered from all our enemies, that none of them may harass us at the hour of death, but that we may be conducted by him into Your Presence. This we ask through the merits of Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Conclude Chaplet with this Novena Prayer:
St. Michael the Archangel, we honor you as a powerful protector of the Church and guardian of our souls. Inspire us with your humility, courage and strength that we may reject sin and perfect our love for our Heavenly Father.
In your strength and humility, slay the evil and pride in our hearts so that nothing will keep us from God.
St. Michael the Archangel, pray that we may be blessed by God with the zeal to live our lives in accordance with Christ’s teachings.
St. Michael the Archangel, you are the prince of angels but in your humility, you recognized that God is God and you are but His servant. Unlike Satan, you were not overcome with pride but were steadfast in humility. Pray that we will have this same humility.
It is in the spirit of that humility that we ask for your intercession for our petitions… (Petition: Protect our nation from unGodly liberals gaining power and control)
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
The following is from Tom Stevens, President and CEO of the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia.
October is Respect Life month! The Archdiocese of Philadelphia is hosting the opening celebration on Sunday, September 27th with a Holy Hour at 5:15 p.m. with the Sisters of Life, followed by 6:30 p.m. Mass with Archbishop Nelson Perez at the Cathedral of SS. Peter & Paul, 18th Street and Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Phila., PA 19103.
This year’s Respect Life theme is “Walking with Moms in Need: a year of service.”
The nation mourns the loss of a trailblazing Supreme Court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Today she lost her battle to cancer at the age of 87.
She was the second woman ever to sit on the highest court of the United States. She fought for women’s equality during her time as a lawyer.
Unfortunately, the biggest test that she failed during her career in the Supreme Court is to cease the advancement of Roe v Wade. She has used sex discrimination law time and time again to impose unlimited abortion through many key landmark decisions. She even made it clear during a 2009 New York Times Interview.
View more of her records during her 27 years on the bench here.
What is to Come?
With 44 days until the biggest election since 2016, the senate have a critical role to fill replacing the late judge. The hope of the American people is someone who will reverse the legacy of RBG can bring about a post-Roe era upon confirmation.
Make no mistake, the pro-abortion senators will do everything they can like they tried on Brett Kavanaugh in 2018. My pick for Ginsburg replacement should be Amy Coney Barrett.
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.
