A Celebration of Life

A Day with Mary Praying for Life

Thanks to all of our parishioners who came out for our Annual Celebration of Life and Family Picnic hosted by SJV’s Respect Life Ministry, the Knights of Columbus and St. Anne’s Society on Saturday, May 18th.

Deacon Greg Stokes led us in a beautiful reflection and Living Rosary for Life. We particularly enjoyed hearing the children’s voices lifted up in praying the Rosary with us. What a testament to their families who shared their faith and God’s love and grace with them!

After the Living Rosary, the Knights of Columbus, Memorial Council 6527 presented the Gabriel Project a check with the proceeds from their Annual Wine Tasting and Auction. St. Anne’s Society held a gift card drive prior to the event, and they also presented the Gabriel Project with these cards for moms enrolled in SJV’s Gabriel Project. Because of their generosity and commitment to the protection of all human life, as well as that of our parishioners, our Gabriel Project Angels will be able to continue to assist mothers in crisis pregnancies with love and compassion, and to support them in their choice of life for their babies! The check presentation was followed by hamburgers and hot dogs prepared by the Knights, as well as games, music, contests, races, and fun for the entire family!

If you missed it this year, please continue to pray for the protection of all human life and be sure to join us next year!
