Our Hearts Beat for Life

What are you being called to do for life? Check out this email from Lisa Hall in the Diocese of Syracuse Family/Respect Life Office regarding UnPlanned and Our Hearts Beat for Life, a program initiated at Holy Family Parish, Fairmount NY. Abortion is an issue for everyone and all the featured information below can be used in any faith based organization.

Please check out the information and adapt it as needed. We all need to work together to change our culture to a Culture of Life.

Hall, Lisa (lhall@syrdio.org)

Dear Pro-life Friends/Coordinators:Many have wanted to get involved and do more since the passage of the awful Reproductive Health Act on January 22nd.  Please consider the following suggestions:
1) Meet with your group and/or pastor to begin the Our Hearts Beat for Life parish initiative.  See the attached parish self-assessment to determine how you can better pray for, educate about, act on behalf of, and advocate for life!  We have also provided a fact sheet about the new law as well as a summary about where to find things in the new law.
2) Join us for a screening of the movie, Unplanned– the Abby Johnson story.  We have secured a number of tickets for the April 1st showing at Destiny, USA.  More information about the film is available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBLWpKbC3ww
