In light of the proposed pro-choice legislation in Illinois and sweeping pro-choice legislation around the country, we wanted to share with you some resources and events in which your support is encouraged! If you are looking to get more involved in fighting for the unborn, assisting women, and strengthening families, please consider joining us. We will be including more information in the coming weeks on how Cathedral will be working to support the pro-life movement.
Crusaders for Life
Calling all junior high and high school students! Are you an advocate for life? Want to get involved in the joyful message of life and meet new people in the Springfield area? Crusaders for Life are coming to Springfield! Come check it out as this chapter is launching on Feb. 23, at 7:30 p.m. at the Sacred Heart Church Parish Center (730 S. 12th Street in Springfield).
The Crusaders for Life work to educate ourselves on the issue of abortion so that we are better prepared to advance the pro-life cause in our schools, workplaces, and families. By fully understanding what abortion does to the unborn and their mothers and fathers, we are less likely to become numb to the fact that it happens every day by the thousands. With this understanding we try to spread the truth everywhere we go by participating in rallies, marches, protests, and prayer vigils. Through joy and prayer, we hope to re-establish the belief that there is beauty and sacredness in every life, born and unborn, and that each life needs to be cherished and protected.
Mark your calendar for Life Advocacy Day at the State Capitol on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, 10:00-1:00. Lunch will be provided. Check future bulletins for further information.
