The numbers are not out yet as to the approximate amount of people who attended the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children in the various locations around the country, but I know if the turn out was as good as the one I attended, it had to be not just a huge success, but a Blessing for all who took part in it and/or attended.
National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children is a joint project of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life, and the Pro-Life Action League.

In case you were earlier not aware, the Satanic Temple of Detroit is still planning to unveil their satanic statue somewhere in Detroit in July (they are not revealing where and when). They originally were planning to do so in Eastern Market on July 25 but have now cancelled due to loud protests.
On Saturday, July 25 (Feast of St. James, Apostle), our St. Joseph Church in Detroit will offer a 10 AM Mass of Reparation followed by a 11 AM Eucharistic Holy Hour for the City of Detroit. The information flyer can be downloaded and printed from here: www.motherofdivinemercy.org/docs/7-25-15MassandHolyHour.pdf
If you are able to, please attend this special Mass and Holy Hour to pray for our city and country! Also, if you are able to, please send and share this information with all of your family members and friends! Let us hope and pray for a big turnout!

I’m thrilled to announce that Students for Life’s President, Kristan Hawkins gave birth yesterday, May 14th, to her 4th child and 1st daughter, Gracie Jane Hawkins! Both Kristan and Gracie are doing well!
She is so cute that we wanted to send you a picture of her!
Like the pro-life activist she is, Kristan asked our team to make a special “I am the Pro-Life Generation” baby onesise for Gracie to wear after she was born, so of course she took it with her to the hospital 😉
While Kristan is taking a couple of weeks off to heal and adjust to life with four little ones, our team is going to be going full-steam ahead.
This year, we’ve been incredibly fortunate to work with many young moms in crisis on college campuses and help them choose life.
