Building the Domestic Church While Strengthening Our Parish

40 Days for Life reaches the halfway point today. Are you participating?

Brother Knights and families,

With all the recent controversial planned parenthood videos exposing the ugliness of such an industry of abortion, we should all be a part of a 40 Days for Life program somewhere. Go to: 40 Days for Life locations to find a City in Iowa near you to help with a little bit of time and prayer with fellow Pro-Lifers.

The locations in Iowa should show up as:

  1. 1. Bettendorf, IA

  2. 2. Cedar Falls, IA

  3. 3. Cedar Rapids, IA

  4. 4. Council Bluffs, IA

  5. 5. Des Moines, IA

  6. 6. Dubuque, IA

  7. 7. Iowa City, IA

  8. 8. Sioux City, IA

In Council Bluffs we wrapped up the 40 Days midpoint evening with some faith and sharing at Gabriel's Corner, placed right across the street from the local planned parenthood. But the days events we beautiful. After adoration I joined four women form different small towns in Southwest Iowa to complete their nonstop prayer vigil. They were from Imogene, Emerson, Farragut and Red Oak (where they had shut down a planned parenthood unit there this summer) and from three different faiths, Catholic, Lutheran and Baptist. One lady was 79 years old, her name is Mary and she was a fireball. One lady sang Psalms and the other two were actively trying to engage conversation with potential abortion minded women. It was inspiring as others joined up and gave us relief later in the day. I encourage you all to try this for a while, even if it is 15 minutes and see if God gives you the strength to come back. Please men, stand up for life.

Vivat Jesus!

ok, Dennis, thanks. It sorta fell through the cracks here in Decorah. We'll see what we can do. Peace be with you.

No, it isn't too late to set one up-talk to the 40 Days for Life organization.

Is it too late to get one of these going in Decorah?
