Bishop Paprocki on the Importance of Attending Sunday Mass

MPH for Life

40 Days for Life:  From September 25th to November 3rd, our parish will unite with many others from coast to coast - and internationally - for a major simultaneous pro-life mobilization - the 40 Days for Life Campaign.  40 Days for Life is an intensive effort designed to raise awareness, save lives, and bring healing by 40 days of prayer, fasting and peaceful vigil.  MPH for Life has committed to pray in front of the Hope Clinic for Women in Granite City on Wednesday, September 25th from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM.  There is a sign-up sheet on the counter in the main vestibule of church.  MPH for Life members will be present to answer your questions.  We need at least two people every hour to pray but would prefer four to five people in order to make a strong showing, especially since this is the first day of the campaign.  We also ask you to consider joining us every day after the 8:00 Mass and before the weekend Masses to pray the rosary during this campaign period.  Please help us bear witness for those who cannot speak for themselves by creating a public image that is peaceful in order to demonstrate our Christian values and our faithful commitment to help the unborn.  You can read more about this effort at www.40daysgc.com.
