Rally in St. Louis
A reader asked me to post the following request:
Some of you may have seen the cover story of the Sept. 19-25 issue of the National Catholic Register. It describes how a group of 500 students from Franciscan University of Steubenville showed up as a peaceful, prayerful pro-life witness at a campaign event held in Steubenville for Sen. John Kerry.
As you may know, the senator will be having a similar event here in Forest Park after this Friday night's debate. A number of us felt that it would not be right to let this go by without offering a similar witness to the sanctity of life and the incongruity of the position which Senator Kerry represents. The archbishop was informed of our idea and gave us his blessing on the undertaking.
We do not yet know exactly where and when on Friday night we will get together for this, but I will give you all that as soon as we know it. We will also be in touch with the archdiocesan pro-life office to try to get as many other people to join us as we can, and find somewhere to get good pro-life signs to hold. Meanwhile, all of you are invited to join us in this, and if you have any suggestions that could help, please let me know (email@example.com). I apologize for the less than 48 hours notice, but I hope a good number of the community will be able to join us. Even if you cannot, please pray for the Holy Spirit's guidance for this event, and for the conversion of hearts in our nation, including our leaders.
If you plan on attending and would like to be kept up to date on the when and where info please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or check for updates at www.priesthood.motime.com.
If you are Catholic or know any in St Louis and supporting Kerry, a counter force would be nice. Get the word out!!
