“Everyone has an obligation to be at the service of life… Together we all sense our duty to preach the Gospel of Life to celebrate it in the Liturgy and in our whole existence, and to serve it with the various programmes and structures which support and promote life.” (John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae #79)
- Hold a baby shower with your friends and donate the presents to Family Life Crisis Pregnancy Centre, for use by those girls and women who have chosen life for their babies in difficult circumstances.
Prayer for a Pro-Life Pregnancy Center
Lord, we thank You for Your grace in allowing Family Life Crisis Pregnancy Centre to open in our area. We beg Your blessings upon all supporters of this centre, upon all who help in any way, and especially upon all those who call and/or come to the Centre for help. We ask You to influence these women to choose life for their babies. We ask you to enlighten our advisors on how to individually help and advise each women who comes to the Centre. Lord, we trust You with our lives and with the lives of our family members. We put into Your hands all those who come to Family Life Crisis Pregnancy Centre. May Your holy will be forever done, and may all we do give You glory. Amen.
This is an excellent idea. A couple of years ago the ladies in my church decided to do this and we received such an outpouring of gifts that we gave them away to two different pregnancy centers! The people at the centers were so appreciative of the gifts that we provided for the moms and babies.
Yes, such a fun way to give! It also is an opportunity to involve people who may not otherwise get involved in the pro-life movement.
