This morning I went with fellow parishioners to join with hundreds of other prolife advocates for the defund Planned Parenthood Rally at the PP abortion center in St. Paul. This was one of hundreds of rallies across the US today. The speakers and prayers were uplifting and encouraged us to participate in the upcoming 40 Days for Life – as well as a special call to action regarding the attached Defunding Planned Parenthood PDF. (And yes, the PP supporters were there in their “special” hats . . . )
Please review the defunding document and act this coming week. You can share it with prolife family and friends.
You will need to get the contact information for your Congressman:
For all of us in Minnesota, we have Senators Klobuchar and Franken, who are not prolife – but they still need to hear from you.
Congressman Jason Lewis (CD2) is prolife (newly elected in November 2016) – but he needs to hear from you to confirm our support of his prolife stance. You can keep your message short.
Senior Senator from Minnesota
Since Jan 4, 2007 (Next Election in 2018)
Junior Senator from Minnesota
Since Jul 7, 2009 (Next Election in 2020)
Representative for Minnesota's 2nd congressional district
Since Jan 3, 2017 (Next Election in 2018)
Look for more information coming about 40 Days for Life – which starts on Ash () and concludes on April 9th.
For those of you in the MSP metro area, mark your calendars for the Annual GoodPrayer Vigil, April 14th from at Planned Parenthood, 671 Vandalia St., St. Paul, MN 55114. This is a prayerful, peaceful vigil for people of all ages (you can come and go as your schedule permits.) There has been free bus service from the University of St. Thomas – which makes it very easy to participate (free parking too). More info come.
Please keep praying for life. Also attached are intercessory prayers for life from the USCCB.
Yours in Christ,
Lynn Spieker, respect life chair

Work is under way to plan an event you will enjoy. Our annual convention is the celebrated event and the convention would commence during the day as usual but Mass and the officer installation would be moved from the morning to the afternoon. Following Mass, the festivities will continue. A spot for the convention and celebration has not been determined. The State Board may host this event but event bids are being accepted. We are in need of photos from the past and any other old document that you would like to share.
Assessments were sent to all auxiliaries and to date some auxiliaries have returned the entire amount assessed. We thank you for your financial support of the celebration.
Your committee members are Jean Burnett, Nancy Mathewson, Mary Wick, Marilyn Jacobs and Ann Aeschliman. Please dig in your past and send items to one of the committee members.
