Calling pro-life men of courage! Behind a mother considering aborting her child, there is often a father who abandoned his responsibility. Let’s look to St. Joseph as our model. When Joseph found himself engaged to a pregnant teen mother -he had the courage to stay with Mary and raise the child Jesus. This Friday, Vianney men, inspired by St. Joseph, will pray in front of an abortion mill -for the unborn, for the mothers, and for the fathers. It is called 40 Days for Life, and you are invited to join us. See Fr. Tim or Mr Kheriaty for details.
