Pro-Life

In the light of the Church’s mission to defend Life in all its stages, Mother of Divine Grace Parish seeks to establish a Parish Pro-Life Committee. The purpose of this Committee would be keep our parishioners informed of the many Pro-Life issues taking place in our State, Country & City. A second purpose of the parish Pro-Life committee would be to offer parishioners opportunities to be involved in promoting and defending the sacredness of all Life. This could be something as simple as encouraging our elected leaders to act, with the power of their vote, for/against legislature that affirms or threatens Life. Many times such action takes the form of e mailing our elected leaders with a brief message. MDG’s Pro-Life Committee would provide parishioners with quick and easy ways of doing this. Other forms of activities promoted by this committee would be to sponsor a bus to Washington D. C. for the annual March for Life , which is usually held around the third week of January. These are only examples of what a dynamic Pro-Life Committee can do. Our pastor, Fr. Walter Benn invites anyone who recognizes the importance of this mission to consider being a part of Mother of Divine Grace’s Pro-Life Committee. If interested, please contact him at rectory@motherdivinegrace.com or call [215]739-0353.
