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

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.”

 

HEAR THE STORY OF STELLA DALLOS, A HEALTHY YOUNG GIRL BORN DURING THE 23RD WEEK OF PREGNANCY.

We have been invited by Southern Downriver Right to Life to join them at their Annual Meeting on March 20, 2019 at 7:00 P.M.

Have you ever wondered  what the feet of a premature baby that is born at the 23rd week of pregnancy look like?  My daughter-in-law, a neo-natal nurse, shared the attached picture of the footprints of a baby girl born at 23 weeks who she took care of during her first few weeks of life at the Medical Center of South Carolina.  The little girl weighed less than one pound at birth.  Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

23 week feet-2, 9-10-17

The beauty of this little girl’s birth is in stark contrast to the recent passage of New York’s Reproductive Health Act in January legalizing abortion for any reason right up to the moment of delivery, and the governor of Virginia, a pediatric neurosurgeon, discussing on the radio the possibility of legislation allowing a newborn infant with viability or other issues to be allowed to die after delivery with the consent of her parents.

That’s why I want TO INVITE YOU to Southern Downriver Right to Life’s (SDRTL) Annual Meeting on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20 AT 7:00PM, and hear the AMAZING STORY OF STELLA DALLOS, A HEALTHY YOUNG GIRL FROM OUR OWN DOWNRIVER AREA WHO WAS BORN DURING THE 23RD WEEK OF PREGNANCY.

Jim Dallos’s heartwarming story of his daughter’s birth will set the stage for our renewed efforts, as a local affiliate of Right to Life of Michigan, to limit late term abortions in our state. We will also be electing a new Board and Officers for SDRTL, and we will outline the rest of our activities and plans for the balance of 2019.

We made some good progress in promoting a Culture of Life in both Michigan and Downriver in 2018, but we now have a strongly Pro-Abortion Governor & Pro-Abortion Attorney General who will stop at nothing to promote a Pro-Death agenda  similar to what just became law in New York.

 We can’t let that happen here. Unborn children just like Stella need your help in 2019.

Come and hear Stella’s story.  It is truly amazing, and it is almost too beautiful to be true…. but it is.
