PRO-LIFE:

Would you be "Pro-Choice" if choice meant someone had the right to kill you? It's actually easy to be "Pro-choice" as long as you're not the one being chosen to die. Babies have no choice or voice to speak out for life.
Having sown the seeds of abortion we now reap a harvest of despair, this appears in every area of our culture causing death of 4000 babies by surgical abortion every day. Let us, as people of god, call upon the Holy Spirit for the wisdom and courage to cease this barbaric practice of abortion.



RETREAT FOR POST-ABORTION HEALING:
Rachels Vineyard weekend retreats are a beautiful opportunity for women who have struggled with the emotional or spiritual pain of an abortion. It offers a supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment where you can begin the process of healing.  For more information, please contact by email at
projectrachel@arlingtondiocese.org

THE MOST HOLY BLOOD AND BODY OF CHRIST:
Jesus has given his Body to eat and His Blood to drink so as to nourish us on our journey towards Heaven. All are called in Christ but some are chosen to nourish His body as priests and in the consecrated life. Could you be among them? If so, please call Father J.D. Jaffe at 703-841-2514 or email j.jaffe@arlingtondiocese.org

 

PASS IT ON:

Your Catholic Heritage is a blessing you can share with future generations - pass it on! Consider making a bequest to Precious Blood Church in your will.  For more information call the diocesan Planned Giving Office @ 703-841-2516.
