ABORTION: “To claim the right to abortion, infanticide and euthanasia, and to recognize that right in law, means to attribute to human freedom a perverse and evil significance; that of an absolute power over others and against others.”
Suggested prayer: That families facing an untimely pregnancy may turn to God for help and strength, we pray.

MISSION AWARENESS WEEKEND: This weekend is our annual mission appeal for the work of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.  Deacon David Jordan,  representing the Office of Global  Concerns, is here this weekend.  “Go to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples:  Baptize them…, Teach them… And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”  We have all been commissioned by Jesus to bring his gospel to everyone, but for many the great commission is more “the great omission”, because we just don’t do it.  Let’s join in the mission of Jesus by becoming members of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! TWO YOUNG MEN’S RETREATS are being organized and directed by Fr. Adam Hertzfeld and Toledo seminarians.  The retreats are for the purpose of helping young men to get away to get some solid prayer and spiritual talks.  They are not necessarily for men who think they will be priests, but rather have the goal of helping young men draw closer to Jesus and grow in their desire to follow Him, wherever it is that He leads them vocationally.  The retreats will include mass and confessions, as well as plenty of food and some sports.  Some logistics still have to be worked out, especially the places solidified.  The retreat for young men in grades 7-8 will be July 10th-12th (Friday evening through Sunday morning).  The retreat for men in grades 9-12 will be June 26th-28th.

HEARTBEAT OF TOLEDO a pro-life pregnancy center, is once again sponsoring its “Change for Changing Lives of Mothers and Babies” baby bottle campaign.  Please start gathering that loose change from home and car, relatives and friends, and pick up a baby bottle after Mass on the weekend of March 14th and 15th.

STAND & PRAY - Lent 2009: Take your Lenten prayer and fasting to a new level this year by joining others in peaceful prayer outside Center for Choice, 328 22nd St., Toledo, from Ash Wednesday through Good Friday.  Come and pray any time it’s convenient to you, but the most helpful times are: Mon., Tues. & Wed. 8a.m -5p.m; Thurs. 2-10p.m.; Fri. 8a.m.-1p.m.  For more information, contact Ann at 419-708-9497 or visit
