A Prayer for an End to Abortion

Heavenly Father,

Spare our nation from the scourge of abortion.

Protect the lives of children in the womb.

Give hope and strength to their mothers.

Stir love in the hearts of fathers to support and cherish mother and child.

Cause our elected leaders and the courts to recognize and protect the person hood of unborn children.

Lift up church leaders to proclaim a Culture of Life.

Lead parents who had abortions to repentance and healing.

Bring about the conversion of the abortionist, of those who deny the birthright of children and those who are indifferent.

Grant me the courage and energy to be a Defender of Life.

I ask this through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.march for life at church 3

We, at St. Helena Catholic Church, are concerned with educating, directing, and sustaining all who visit. 

In particular those who draw near to the teachings and traditions of Holy Mother Church. 

We strive to achieve this by utilizing the Cardinal Virtues of Justice, Prudence, Temperance and Fortitude.
