National Day of Remembrance: On Saturday, September 9, 2017, Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life and the Pro-Life Action League will co-sponsor the 5th annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children. There are over 51 cemeteries in the United States that provide gravesites for aborted children. They will conduct solemn prayer vigils at these gravesites as well as at dozens of other sites dedicated in memory of aborted children. There are no known services locally in Kentucky or Ohio so we ask you to take some time on September 9 to pray for aborted children and their families.
Care Net Annual 5K Run/Walk for Life is Saturday, September 23 at Pioneer Park starting at 9:00 am. Individual runners/walkers $25; children 12 & under $10; dri-fit t-shirt $10 (fees waived with $100 in pledges). Proceeds benefit the Parenting Education programs offered at Care Net Pregnancy Services.
HUSH – The showing of the movie HUSH will be held at St. Pius X in Edgewood KY on Tuesday, September 26 beginning at 6:30 p.m. This internationally acclaimed, award winning documentary explores the impact of abortion, miscarriage, and contraception on women’s health. It is especially unique in that it is directed by a pro-choice woman and she works with a pro-life executive producer and a ‘neutral’ producer.
