SPIRITUALLY ADOPT AN UNBORN BABY
Next weekend January 26th/27
Everyone loves the beauty and innocence of a baby. As an expression of that love, St. Catherine’s Choose Life Committee announces an adoption program for old and young alike. The member of St. Catherine’s parish family will have the opportunity to “spiritually adopt” a child. You may adopt a child individually or as a family by taking a granny square prayer kit, pray a daily Hail Mary for the parents of the baby. You will be asked to name the child for whom you will be praying, thereby giving the baby the humanity he or she deserves. The child will be born in October, at that time we will celebrate your child’s birth with a baby shower. The baby gifts collected will be given to a local pregnancy center. You will be asked to return the granny square you are given and it will be used to make a baby blanket. There are millions of unborn babies desperately in need of your prayers, for the power of prayer is great. Won’t you please “spiritually adopt” a baby and share the love for life that God has given you? God bless you!
Day 1: Your Spiritually Adopted Baby is conceived!
At the moment of conception my new human life begins, complete with my own DNA. My sex is determined and although I am no bigger than a grain of sugar, I have a soul!
