OUR CENTENNIAL MINISTRY OF THE MONTH:
We have a three-fold mission:
(1) education about the growth and development of human life before birth and about the sanctity of all human life from conception until natural death.
(2) financial support for Crisis Pregnancy Centers which assist pregnant moms, pre-born children, new mothers and their babies with emotional, material and practical needs.
(3) social action to witness to the worth and dignity each human life before God.
Through the year, opportunities to extend the pro-life message are available: after Mass, Mother’s day Flower sale, Fathers’ Day gift hand-out, Pro-life booth at the McHenry County Fair, table topics, legislative alerts and contacts.
Currently parish members are returning cash-filled bottles to finance Crisis Pregnancy Centers’ needs. Some offered public pro-life testament at the Life-Chain on Crystal Lake’s Main Street on the First Sunday in October. Let us know your usual Mass time to staff the pro-life table and help others realize the truth about human life. Call (847-658-8379) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
