Divine Mercy Culture of Life Committee           Meeting Notes from April 9, 2014

Present: Natasia Kissinger, Gloria Jean Capiton, Paul Sutphen, Gloria Abadie & Rita Moschella
Each person present was given a copy of the Goals of the committee and Items suggested to Get Started. 

In the Parish
-We still have the Pro-Life Rosary on the First Thursday of each month following 7:30am Mass.

-Discussed having a “Life” table set up in the Narthex with Literature and information regarding all life issues from conception until natural death.  (Fr. David is going to let me know where we can set this up)

-We will begin a Spiritual Adoption in September along with St. Elizabeth Ann Seton school.  We would like to have students from the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton’s pro-life club, Eagles for Life, give updates on the babies we pray for during the Spiritual Adoption.  We were thinking once per trimester, ie, October, January & April. 

-We will stay in touch with Ben Clapper and Peg Kenny regarding all current legislative and other life activities.  We will also inform our parish via, the bulletin, facebook, announcements and other means.

-Working on obtaining a speaker.  (ideas were Peg Kenny, Ben Clapper, Fr. Doyle or some other local person)

Pastoral Council – We would like to attend the meetings to inform them of our events and to be informed of other events in the parish.  (Fr. David said that the meetings already have a full agenda, but someone from the council should be staying in touch with us to keep communication open)

Community Outreach

-Rita requested that more people come out to the abortion clinic to pray.  This is really needed.

-ACCESS van – we would like this to be advertised more in our parish.  It is such a great service to women.   (I asked Fr. David if we can have refreshment out there on May 6th from 9:30am – 11:00am)

-Working on obtaining a speaker.  (ideas were Peg Kenny, Ben Clapper, Fr. Doyle or some other local person)

-We will participate in the 40 Days for Life program.

We will advertise our committee and invite others to our next meeting…it will be in summer
