Please keep in your prayers Richard Breier, brother of Charlie Breier and father of fellow brother knight Richard C. Breier. Richard passed away yesterday after a 2 year battle with cancer.
Please consider attending this important life saving fundraiser — Saturday, June 19th. We would like to see several 1369 tables present.
Attached is the flyer covering the ultra sound fundraiser hosted at St Raphael. All funds go to the purchase of one of these life saving machines.
Columbia Magazine reported in January that at one center 90% of woman who opted for the ultrasound chose life. We are trying to sell tables of 8 at $50 per plate with about half a donation.
Fr Milota will be attending with a few other speakers. It has the making of a good evening.

Dear Friends of Life,
Occasionally some questions arise regarding a particular institution and whether they support ethical practices in accord with consistent Catholic teaching. Sometimes it is difficult to determine beyond a doubt whether a particular institution might be funding unethical practices. When we can objectively verify such a practice, the Life Office will try to keep you informed. Therefore, a question arose regarding the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and whether they fund Embryonic Stem Cell Research. The answer to this question is that they do fund Embryonic Stem Cell Research which is considered unethical in that it requires the destruction of a human life. Please refer to the attached document which comes from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BISHOPS URGE CONGRESS TO SUPPORT BILL TO REMEDY ABORTION, CONSCIENCE FLAWS IN HEALTH CARE REFORM LAW
Act Applies Hyde Amendment to New Funds
Fixing Health Care a Legislative Goal of U.S. Bishops
WASHINGTON—Congress should support a bipartisan bill that will remedy the abortion and conscience flaws in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), according to the Chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities. In a May 20 letter to Congress, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston said PPACA was an important step toward ensuring access to health coverage for all Americans but was “profoundly flawed in its treatment of abortion, conscience rights, and fairness to immigrants.” He urged members to support H.R. 5111, sponsored by Reps. Joseph Pitts (R-PA) and Dan Lipinski (D-IL) with 91 other House members, and added, “Efforts to ensure that our health care system truly serves the life, health and conscience of all will be a legislative goal of the Catholic bishops in the months to come.”
It is now May, the month of Mary. In honor of her, first watch this video…
and then come to the pro life rosary/protest.
Are you looking for a prayer challenge? The Knights of Columbus 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. 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. Parking is right next door behind the Blockbuster store. For further information, please contact John Zabinski at 630-369-8439.
WE EXTEND A WARM WELCOME TO OUR NEW BROTHER KNIGHTS AND THEIR FAMILIES! GOD BLESS YOU!
