St. Gianna Beretta Molla
As a member of the Embrace Life Ministry (ELM), you may also enjoy a devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe, “Patroness of the Unborn”. Depicted as carrying the Christ child within her womb, she exhibits the profound joy that is brought about by an absolute confidence in God – an assurance that through God, we receive the grace and strength to rise above any seemingly insurmountable situation.
Parish Prayer Campaign: The Embrace Life Ministry invites all parishioners to participate in this monthly effort by volunteering to accept a statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas and Protectress of the Unborn, at the end of Mass. The statue, along with a lovely bag containing other devotional items, will be taken home for a month and used to inspire prayers for a greater respect for all human life from natural conception to natural death. Sign up your family today!

Prayer for Life
O God, our Creator, all life is in your hands from conception until death.
Help us to cherish our children and to reverence the awesome privilege of our share in creation.
May all people live and die in dignity and love.
Bless all those who defend the rights of the unborn, the handicapped and the aged.
Enlighten and be merciful toward those who fail to love, and give them peace.
Let freedom be tempered by responsibility, integrity and morality.
