Respect Life Spiritual Adoption Program
Spiritual Adoption Program Set to Begin
All babies are precious. Babies in their mother’s womb hold within them 23 sets of chromosomes that will determine their physical features. At fertilization, it is already determined how tall he will be, the color of his eyes, what color her hair will be and whether it will be straight or curly. We want all babies in the womb to be born and to have the opportunity to live a happy life. We want all babies to experience the love of a family.
Sadly, some babies are not allowed to be born. As an expression of love and concern, the parish families of SS. Cyril and Methodius, St. Alphonsus and St. Patrick will have the opportunity to participate in a Spiritual Adoption program. In this program, you are asked to “adopt” a baby in danger of not being allowed to be born. Almost 3000 babies each day are aborted in the U.S. It is these babies you are being asked to “adopt” through your prayer.
You may adopt a child individually or as a family by signing up on the weekend of August 13/14. You will be given a prayer card and asked to name and pray a simple prayer for your child for the next nine months. Monthly reports on the development of your child will be put in the parish bulletin.
There are millions of babies in need of your prayer. Will you please show your love for the precious gift of life by spiritually adopting a child? You will give him or her the love they need while in their mother’s womb. Representatives will be available after all Masses on August 13/14 to help you sign up.
