What Will it Take?


If abortion is the killing of our unborn children, which it is, then how should we go about ending abortion today?  Are we doing what is takes?  What will it take? 

Are we doing enough -  are we honestly committed to ending abortion ASAP?

Is Fr. Frank Pavone, Director of Priests for Life, correct when he says, " abortion will only end when America 'sees' abortion for what it is."

Maybe it is time to "step-up" the game. If so, how?   What do YOU think?

“YOU ARE LOVED BY GOD”

SEATTLE MEN’S CONFERENCE –Saturday, March, 2, 2013

 It was the first of its kind here in Western Washington was held at St. Mary of the Valley in Monroe.  Days earlier, registrations numbered about 200, but Saturday, Fr. Bloom said 500 men were in attendance.  Clearly, there is a need for Catholic men to gather together in prayer and worship, and to learn their spiritual calling as men who serve, protect, and defend…to serve, protect, and defend women, life, and religious liberty.

Speakers for the day: Archbishop Peter Sartain: You are Loved by God; Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers, Men as protectors, defenders; Fr. Ed White, Men as leaders in solidarity; and Fr. Phil Bloom, pastor, St. Mary of the Valley, gracious host.  The day’s activities: continental breakfast, four primary talks, lunch, confession, adoration, music, Mass, followed by spaghetti dinner, and a Shroud of Turin presentation. Additional presentations were given by 4US, pro-life organization raising funds for ultrasounds in Pregnancy Resource Centers;  Knights of Columbus State Council, a Catholic Men’s organization. Everett 40 Days for Life and Helpers of God's Precious Infants were also represented as was the Family Life Institute.
