Late Notice, Worthy Cause


TODAY!! Sunday April 26, 2009 40 Days for Life St. Louis is partnering with Defenders of the Unborn to stand in prayerful protest at the Abortion Banquet that will be held at Orlando Gardens on Watson Rd.

This banquet is hosted by Planned Parenthood and the Coalition for Reproductive Choice each year to "honor" those in our community who have worked hard to keep abortion "Alive."

This event is an added offense for Catholics because it is held again this year at a banquet center that is owned by a Catholic family.

When they were asked why they would allow this event to be held at this facility the response from Mr. Orlando was, "well times are bad and we need the business."  Orlando Gardens is taking money from an organization that kills children for a living.  The money from this banquet is paid with the blood of our children.  We will stand in peaceful, prayerful protest from 
5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.

Please contact Mary if you are able to attend @ 314-346-9052.

Let's stand together to let Planned Parenthood and those who celebrate abortion know that the Christian community does not approve.

I hope that you can make it!!

I would recommend to Catholics and all men and women of good conscience, to boycott Orlando Gardens most vigorously. See how bad business can get.

I had not read this post until after the fact, but I was on Watson road just an hour ago and it was a beautiful witness to see the Pro-lifers manning the sidewalks. Thank you for your prayerful witness; it is so sad that this is an all-too-common occurrence.

Mr. Orlando would do well to pray on today's Good Shepherd gospel reading. Our Lord placed him in a position to be a good shepherd. An example of Catholic business leadership. He fled.
