Quadalupe Workers Need Your Help!

is

The Guadalupe Workers are busy with several tasks–and we really need help!
Firstly, a mother whom we met a few years ago at the Ann Arbor Planned Parenthood was recently deported; her four children, however, were left behind.  Two of those children are older and will remain with their Aunt here in the U.S.  The mother, however, has asked the Guadalupe Workers to bring to her the youngest children, including the child rescued three years ago at the Planned Parenthood.  The paperwork is done and the plane reservations are made.  The trip, though, is leaving a large hole in our bank account, to the amount of about $4,000.  
Secondly, the Workers have begun putting together the first Michigan Sidewalk Counseling Symposium, scheduled for September 29.  This symposium is a cooperative effort with Helpers of God’s Precious Infants, Sidewalk Advocates, and others.  Confirmed speakers include Walter Hoye, Anne Scheidler, David Bereit.  These speakers are requesting only travel expenses in order to be with us on that day; yet, as you know, those expenses can be formidable (Walter and his wife are coming from California).
Thirdly, the Workers are still homeless.  In our last newsletter, we expressed the desire to own our own home in Detroit.  Just keeping up with the mother requests over the summer, though, has kept our account at subsistence  level.  So, we are still homeless, still looking.  Fine tuning the request a bit, specifically what we seek is a larger home (2,000 sq ft) preferably on the southwest side.
Finally, our commitment to being on the sidewalk remains essential to our work.  This summer, we’ve been going out on weekdays, thereby avoiding the escorts.  By God’s grace, we’ve witnessed several turn-a-ways and have gladly accepted some costs in helping these mothers.  
Please help us in any way you can; especially, remember us in prayer when we leave August 13 to return little Ernesto and his sister to their mother.  We are flying into Mexico City but will need to drive north about three hours in order to meet their mother–and I’ve heard horror stories about driving in Mexico! (Though it can’t be worse than Chicago.)

 

Thank you,
Edmund Miller,
President of Guadalupe Workers

A Grant to Help with the Mobile Ultrasound Unit

ulta

On Wednesday July 25th, at the Troy Christian Chapel, the Right To Life of MI awarded a grant to help with the mobile ultrasound unit that helps many mothers choose life for their unborn babies in Detroit. Our Upper Downriver Right to Life member, Emmanuel (man on the right in blue shirt), drives this mobile ultrasound unit and the funds will be used towards marketing our services to women searching for free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and abortions. We have been looking at new ways to let vulnerable women know who we are and where we are.

The grant is awarded to Pregnancy Resource organizations that work to save the lives of the pre-born and their mothers from the horrors of abortion in the city of Detroit. Last year three centers received the grant and this year ICU Birth Choice along with Detroit Pregnancy Test And Help Center (2 Doors down from Summit on McNichols) will receive the grant.

Guadalupe Workers Volunteers

is

We are always in need for Volunteers to help out with the Guadalupe Workers monthly meeting for families!

  • The address is 4300 Central St, Detroit, MI 48210.
  • Volunteers 1:00-4:30 (Families 2:00-4:00)


The moms are in one room with their activity while the children are in 3 rooms by age; infants, little kids, and the big kids.

Volunteer jobs include:

  1. Drivers to pick up families and bring them to the event
  2. Childcare helper…….all you need is willingness to help where needed, follow the facilitator’s cues,
  3. Other…..food prep/serve, runner, sort and clean, table mover, hauling stuff as needed
  4. Childcare room leader- experience teaching, leading, coaching is helpful

We can never have too many volunteers! The best volunteers will take initiative to engage the children one-on-one toward building relationships. Volunteers have something to give, something to gain. We miss out when we stand on the sidelines. So if and when we find ourselves standing in a crowded room of kids, wondering what in the world to do….. let’s introduce ourselves by name and start getting to know someone of these wonderful children. Spend time. We are family! Give voice to other’s gifts, encourage them in their strengths. That’s our main job. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VOLUNTEERING. You make a difference!

Letter From Guadalupe Workers – “Mom Needs Help!”

(Ultrasound of 14 week old baby saved from abortion)

“At the abortion clinic! Good morning everybody! This weekend there was a very young woman who turned away from abortion. She’s only 19 years old and she has a 3 year old boy. She has finished high school but we need to help her continue her education and also provide her with a car. Mr. Miller spoke to her and her mother before they went into the abortion clinic, they decided to still go inside and even as she was already in a gown, continue to think and speak to her mother about everything that Mr. Miller had told them. Thank God she walked out of that place. her baby is 14 weeks old in the womb.

We need help. Someone had donated us a car just a couple of weeks ago and we were going to give this car to another family but this other family has four children and this car is too small for them so it would be better to give this car to this mother and if possible give the bigger family a van instead. Many times we have had to purchase cars to help the women because transportation is very important for them in Detroit, but we basically have almost no money and we cannot buy a car at this point. Know that the babies of these mothers that we help would be dead today if it wasn’t because of all the support from everybody that comes together to help us offer this help to the women at the door of the abortion clinics . We are all volunteers and we are a 501 (c)3 non profit. We need support please help us. Invite us over to your parish so other people know about us so more people could contribute as well. Pray for us pray for all of these mothers and their babies.

The picture that I enclosed in this posting is the picture of the ultrasound that Beverly Bellomo Dixon and team took at the ICU Saturday after this young woman left the abortion clinic. The mother texted it to me so happy that she didn’t kill her baby! She said ” the baby is weaving” sure he is! 

If you have a van that you can donate or know someone please let us know. God bless you!”

Pope Francis Has Approved the Beatification of Detroit Capuchin Friar Fr. Solanus Casey

images

At a news conference on May 4, 2017, Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron announced the news that Pope Francis has approved the beatification of Detroit Capuchin Friar, Fr. Solanus Casey, and will be named “blessed”, and has met the requirements sixty years after his death.  Father Casey was the second U.S. born man to achieve such designation, and the first person from Michigan.

Father Solanus Casey’s body was exhumed yesterday, minus the news media.  The casket was in worse shape than his body.  The casket was replaced and his relics were sent to Rome.

It looks as if all 60,000 seats at Ford Field will be needed.  Information about the tickets for his beatification are at:  http://www.themichigancatholic.org/2017/06/fr-solanus-casey-beatified-nov-18-ford-field/.  Tickets can be ordered after August 15.  To receive ceremony details, fill out the form at:  http://solanuscenter.us5.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=03e49d3e6a8b72dec8c041dd9&id=6ac27dda7d

 

Guadalupe Worker’s Need Volunteers – Please, please help us!

Dear Friends,

Guadalupe Workers is a tax deductible 501(c)3 non- profit organization that offers diverse support for mothers with unplanned pregnancies.

Our June speaker session is on Saturday June 3, 2017, at 1:30 PM at Guadalupe Parish, 4330 Central St., Detroit, Michigan. 

We are having another art session since many of the mothers were very inspired and happy with the last session. It helped them pray and release some stress and they liked the results.

I know that sometimes it doesn’t get busy, but many times it is, and if we don’t have helpers, we cannot provide a peaceful environment for these mothers.

It is just once a month. Plus you can meet the mothers who chose life for their babies.

There will be food and Refreshments.

Contact us at: (734) 262-6779 or at:  https://guadalupeworkers.org/contact-us
