40 DAYS FOR LIFE CLOSING VIGIL

Brother Knights,

The Fall 2010 “40 Days for Life” closing vigil is this Sunday, October 31, starting at 5:00pm at the Access abortion clinic on 75th Street.  Please join other Knights, fellow parishioners, and dedicated pro-lifers in celebrating a successful fall vigil (at least 6 babies given a chance at life by their mothers!).  Brother Knight John Costello–a co-founder of the Los Angeles March for Life–who is new to the area has offered to speak at the vigil.

On a related note, Brother Knight Norris Freedman found this tremendous pro-life video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdOCwd9EttE.

Faithfully yours,

Bob LeMay, Recorder

Pro-Life Rosary and Protest – Saturday Nov. 20th, 9AM

It is now November. The month of the November is dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatory. In honor of this, watch this video

[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ozsf8FZqk4s’]

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.

Blood Drive Results

Council 1369 hosted its second and final blood drive of the year in SSPP’s Zuker Hall on Saturday, September 25th.  We didn’t hit our goal of 191 units, but we still had a very successful drive by collecting 134 units.  In our two drives last year we collected a total of 271 units.  This year in two drives we collected 332 units for an increase of 61 units or 23%.

I would like to thank the 15 Knights who made phone calls soliciting donations, the 4 Knights and two wives who stuffed bulletins with fliers, the 14 Knights and numerous family members who solicited donations after all of the Masses one weekend,  the 3 Knights plus family members and SSPP’s Parish Nurse who worked the drive, the 20 Knights who showed up to donate blood either at the event or at Heartland’s Center, and a special thanks goes out to Dan Parker who put all of the announcements on our website and developed the program by which many of you volunteered for the various duties.  Hosting a successful drive is truly a council wide event, and all of you who helped can take a lot of pride in the job you’ve done.  The 332 units we’ve collected this year have the potential when divided into their various components of saving 996 lives.  That is truly an awesome pro-life accomplishment!

Thank you all for your help.
