40 DAYS FOR LIFE
Fri, April 1, 2022, 7 AM-7 PM
St. Patrick Wentzville Adopt-A-Day

You are invited to attend with us, through CoalitionLife.com, the Day of Prayer at the FENCE of Planned Parenthood in St. Louis on April 1st!  St. Patrick's Church has adopted the day, from 7 am to 7 pm and we invite you to adopt just one hour to spend there at Planned Parenthood - St Louis 4251 Forest Park Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63108

To register, please call or text  636-345-2005 (send name and number of adults in the party and, if you want a reminder email, then an email address) OR go online at COALITIONLIFE.COM.

If you are going, please let them know. Any hours not claimed will be filled by a substitute volunteer who will heroically fill in for St. Patrick's to ensure there are two people there at all times. Safety is always the most important thing! 

Get your spouse or group together and spend some time asking our Good God to put an end to this tragic process and bring new life into our world. Then, go enjoy life by going to the Arch, Zoo, Mo. Botanical Gardens,  Fitz's Rootbeer Bottling Co. in the Delmar Loop,  rent a boat in Forest Park, shopping, or so many other things. Please share this email with others and add to it what you plan on doing so we can share ideas. 

Plan an hour to get there from Wentzville and park in the residential area. There aren't any parking meters there along Laclede and Boyle.

Thank you for appreciating life and thanking God through Jesus that your mom chose for you to be born and be encouraging to others who are fearful and maybe choose abortion.  We all make mistakes, but finding a path through our problems makes life worth living and we can help others find their way just by being present.

Please find a way to be there. Of course, there are obligations of work and school and other important events. Of the 40 straight days of prayer and fasting, this is the day for St. Patrick Parish to come together and invite our neighbors to venture out and share love. 

Thank you and God bless you, 
St. Patrick's Church Pro-life Committee 

Again, thank you for sending this message forward to all you know.

LIFE CHAIN AT ST. PATRICK
OCTOBER 3, 2021 | 2-3 PM
Please support pro-life by peacefully expressing your opposition to abortion by holding signs while standing socially distanced on the sidewalk in front of St. Patrick school and church on Sun, October 3 from 2-3 PM. Signs will be provided. You can bring a chair and sit if you need to.


SIGN THE PETITION TO SAVE THE HYDE AMENDMENT
The Hyde Amendment, contained in the federal government's annual appropriations legislation, prohibits federal funding of domestic abortions, except in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother. It is a bi-partisan provision that has been part of federal appropriations for 45 years (since 1976). In addition to being widely supported by Americans, it saves lives and respects the consciences of Americans. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops supports this effort to stop Congress from removing the Hyde Amendment. Stop your tax dollars from going to abortion. Visit NoTaxpayerAbortion.com to sign the petition to take action and receive more information.


PRO-LIFE COMMITTEE

You can join us either in person (social hall) or via Zoom. Please contact the office to receive the Zoom link.

Meetings will resume once a coordinator has been found.
