Post-abortion recovery events coming up, thanks to friend Theresa of Lumina/Hope & Healing after Abortion.
Our third "Day of Remembrance" on January 20, 2007, sponsored by The Family Life Office and Lumina. Please spread the word and if possible plan on attending. It is an amazingly grace filled day and all those who have participated in the past have voiced their gratitude in having come.For those of you who may not catch it before it is taken off the site, Theresa has sent me a copy of that O'Reilly transcript. Let me know if anyone wants a copy. And please keep this brave girl in your prayers!
On January 22nd after the March, Silent No More will once again be holding a gathering in front of the Supreme Court. If you happen to be around please stop by and show them some support.
On January 27th we will be having a men's post abortion retreat at Our Lady of New York in the Bronx. The Knights of Columbus' Columbia Magazine has done an article for their January issue on this ministry led by the Friars of the Renewal. So often men are forgotten when it comes to healing from abortion, but we have been blessed to see God at work in the lives of those who have attended.
From January 8th-Feb 4th, The Westchester Coalition for Life will once again be sponsoring SNM TV ads reaching out to those who are post abortive. Lumina’s number continues to be on the ads as we seek to bring awareness to the general public and hope to those suffering. If you have not seen the ads you can check them out here.
February 9-11 there will be an "Entering Canaan" weekend of Prayer and Healing hosted by The Sisters of Life for those who are post abortive. For further information call 718-881-8008.
