40 DAYS FOR LIFE - September 22 through October 31

The Fall campaign for 40 Days for Life begins on September 22 this year, and runs through October 31. This internationally coordinated prayer campaign aims to bring spiritual focus to abortuaries in 9 locations throughout the state of Illinois.

Since 2007 when 40 Days for Life began, 19,198 babies have been saved, 221 abortion clinic workers have quit, and 112 abortion centers have closed! Former abortion workers have publicly stated that there is up to a 75% no-show rate for appointments when there are people peacefully praying outside of an abortion clinic.

Closest 40 Days for Life is in Flossmoor - Pray for their success!

Help Save Lives At Flossmoor PP - Our Lady of the Ridge / St. Linus parishioner John Ryan, a member of the planning team at Flossmoor, will be maintaining the 40 Days vigil each Wednesday and Thursday from 1 PM to 3 PM.

Anyone who wishes to participate at a time when experienced participants will be present is encouraged to join John.

For more information contact John by voice or text at 708-945-8247 or by e-mail at domer_10305@yahoo.com.

THE WOMEN'S CENTER - Ongoing Request

In our nation approximately 1 million abortions are performed each year. The aborted babies aren’t the only victims. Their mothers, who in many cases were pressured into the abortion, are also victims. Sooner or later, they experience horrible grief and depression. At the Women’s Centers we try to enable women struggling with problem pregnancies to give birth and save them from grieving later.

SEEKING FAMILY ROOM DONATIONS - We need diapers in sizes 4, 5, and 6; pull-ups in sizes 4, 5, 6; boys and girls sleepers sizes 9 to 12 months; receiving blankets, new pacifier s, baby wipes, baby shampoo, and lotion. For more information, please call at773-794-1313.

Please call us at 708-377-7761 or email us at
mpimentel@corazon-chicago.org to see how YOU can make a difference.

You will not need to know Spanish and training will be provided. Please help! You will be surprised at how good it will make you feel and how rewarding this ministry really is!
