Right to Life Volunteers Needed

jjj

Upper Downriver Right to Life usually takes the summer off and has no meetings in July and August.  This summer is an exception.

On June 20, many of us attended the training held by Right to Life of Michigan.  We learned about the legislation that was passed that would ban dismemberment abortions.  Governor Whitmer has promised to veto it.  The state constitution provides a means to by-pass the veto.

We will join with Right to Life of Michigan and collect signatures on petitions to ban dismemberment abortion.  You can read the press release from RLM here.

For your convenience, UD-RTL will hold two special meetings of one hour to explain the situation, enlist the help of volunteers from churches and distribute petitions.  Please make plans to attend one of these meetings.
  • Tuesday, July 9 from 7:30 to 8:30 pm at the Right to Life Resource Center, 2010 Eureka, Wyandotte (734-282-6100)
  • Wednesday, July 10 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm at the same location.
Please help us recruit representatives from as many churches as possible and RSVP to wyandotteRLM@gmail.com as to which session you plan to attend.  We will have information and petitions available at the meetings.  We need your help to secure our share of the 400,000 signatures needed.  Please invite others who may be interested!

If you need a letter to a pastor, please let me know and I will get it to you.

Also, please watch our “Events” page on our Facebook account and volunteer for any of the upcoming events, or for various committees that put together an event.  Often times we need people to make phone calls, or help stuff envelopes, hand out flyers, and join us in our parades, Life Walk, Oratory Contests, Life Chain, our Yard and Bake Sale, and so many other opportunities to reach out to help.

Lincoln Park’s Annual Memorial Day Parade

Please join Upper Downriver Right to Life on Sunday, May 19, 2019, as we “Stand Up For Life” in Lincoln Park’s Annual Memorial Day Parade.  The parade begins at 1:00 P.M.

We still have not received our unit number or line up position, but we’ll probably line up again on White Street a couple blocks off of Fort Street.  We will be getting  that information, so watch our Facebook page this week, or another good alternative would be to ask anyone with a clipboard where the Upper Downriver parade unit is located.

There will be patriotic music coming from our unit.  We plan to use our new portable sound system in all parades from here on out!  Also, Rosalie’s brand new red vehicle will be used in our unit.  AS A REMINDER, the parade runs from Southfield Road down Fort Street to the Band Shelter.  Park either behind the auto part store located at the corner of Fort Street and Southfield or back behind that area a few streets away in the residential section.  If needed, we will drive you back to your vehicle after the parade.  The parade will be finished by 2:00 P.M.  WE NEED YOU TO HELP PASS OUT CARDS AND CANDY.

PLAN TO HONOR GOD’S GIFT OF LIFE TO YOU AS WELL AS THE UNBORN.  PUT IT ON OUR CALENDAR NOW!

Tolton – From Slave to Priest

thumbnail

The newest St. Luke Production live one man, multi-media drama about the first Black Catholic priest in the United States is coming to Detroit and Southgate, Michigan.  Please share the message!  

Tickets available at ToltonDetroit.eventbrite.com

St. Luke Production says, “Martha Tolton was a Missouri slave and a mother, who knew there was only one way to save her family – she had to escape to freedom in Illinois. In the dead of night, she slipped away. It was twenty miles to the Missouri – Illinois border. On the other side lay freedom, but she had to get there first, and that meant crossing the vast Mississippi River. Terrified, she prayed for a miracle, and sure enough, God provided. When reached the river, she found a dilapidated row boat and, with bullets from angry Confederate soldiers whizzing by her ears, she rowed to freedom. Now, more than 150 years later, we know God had a mission for this heroic mother. Through Martha Tolton’s courage, determination, and most of all through her devout Catholic faith, the first African American priest, Father Augustus Tolton, was given to the people of God. His story is amazing and inspiring, and we need to hear it. Tolton will have a powerful impact of healing in our country and all over the world, drawing ALL people to the truth of Jesus Christ. Like Mama Tolton crossing the Mississippi in a leaky boat in the middle of the night, let’s trust in God, and take a risk. Let’s cross that river, and bring freedom to souls through the Truth of Jesus Christ. It’s worth it.”
