The following is a note from Michele Mason, our local 40 Days for Life coordinator:
Our closing celebration was very encouraging! Bishop Sheridan and Fr. Greg Bierbaum led us in prayer and gave us much encouragement. Juli Hobin shared her testimony with us, which touched our hearts in a deep and profound way. She encouraged us to pray for and reach out to moms (and dads) who have had abortions since they are in such deep pain. Hers is a story of forgiveness and redemption in Jesus.
We have all received forgiveness and redemption from Jesus for our own sins. As we are now in the holiest week of the year, let us thank our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ for taking our sins to the cross and paying the price for us all. He is our hope, our healing, and our redemption!
Congratulations to Gary and Kathy Welch, and Rose Anne Schienle, the recipients of the Fr. Bill Carmody, Life Champion “Wilson” Award for their dedication of praying at the sidewalk and helping the pre-born and their mothers and fathers as well as leading others to get post-abortive support.
