and then come to the pro life rosary/protest.

The Knights of Columbus (Council #1369) will conduct a pro life rosary beginning at 9:00 am in front of the Planned Parenthood clinic located at 3051 E. New York Street in Aurora. This will be an ongoing monthly event, that will be held on the 3rd Saturday of the month. The rosary will take about 20-30 minutes. Afterward, you may optionally join the monthly protest. The protest will last until 10:30 am.  By the grace of God, your mere presence and prayer could actually save a life.  Achieve,  at least,  a partial indulgence! Parking is right next door behind the Blockbuster store.  In Addition to this monthly event, there is also a weekly rosary every Tuesday afternoon (2:00 pm) at the same location. There is usually a priest or deacon in attendance for these services. For further information, please contact John Zabinski at 630-369-8439.

Fundraiser at the Lantern Bar & Tavern

“The Lantern Bar & Tavern” will be hosting a fundraiser for Loaves & Fishes on Wednesday September 29th, 2010 from 9pm till Midnight.  We have agreed to support their fundraiser due to their generous donations to our Annual Golf Outing and September being National Hunger Action Month; this proves to be a worthy cause.  Currently they need volunteers to collect food for the evening, sell 50/50 raffle tickets, and help distribute prizes.  Whether you are able to volunteer, stop in and support the fundraiser, drop off a gift card to a local grocery store, or simply swing by with a non-perishable food item during the event; any of the previously mentioned would go a long way!  They have already received a $10,000.00 donation and Loaves & Fishes Directors will be present to accept the check.  If you have any questions or are able to help in any way, please contact Eddie Collins @ 630.946.6444.  Thank you in advance for your support!!
