40 Days for Life

Respect Life Ministry Event to complete 40 Days for Life Campaign: Spiritual Adoption Program

Over 40 years ago the court decision, Roe v. Wade legalized abortion throughout the entire nine months of pregnancy. Over 1 million abortions have been committed in the U.S. each year. To help stop the anti-life push, the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen encouraged the spiritual adoption of an unborn child by praying that one unknown child’s life be spared abortion and be allowed to live. An individual says the following daily prayer of Archbishop Sheen for a period of nine months. “Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of [baby’s name] the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.” Your prayers CAN make a difference between whether a baby will be born...or aborted. Our prayers can also be a form of spiritual support for both of the parents. Please share the love of all God-given life and join the parishioners of St. Raymond of Penafort Parish in spiritually adopting a baby. Sign up the weekend of November 2/ 3. You will have the opportunity to name the baby that you have spiritually adopted and hang your baby’s name on a baby blanket dedicated to all our unborn babies. A blanket for each church will be displayed in St. Adalbert’s and St. Patrick’s for 9 months. In June, we will host a baby shower which will provide parishioners a chance to celebrate the birth of their child with a donated baby item. These baby items along with the blankets will be given to Carolyn’s Place in Waterbury at the end of 9 months. For more information, call Nancy in the rectory: 860-745-2411
