March 1st - April 9th
40 Days for Life on Wisteria Drive, each day
from 7am to 12-midnight.
Prayer and witness
from 8am to 10am outside late-term abortion clinic.
This spring hundreds of cities across the nation
(and the world) are uniting for the 40 Days for Life campaign.
Every 40 Days for Life, we stand in witness as God changes hearts
... and that happens on the sidewalks outside of abortion centers
where faithful Christians pray. St. Martin's has the following
day that our Parish will hold prayer vigil on Wisteria Drive,
Saturday, March 18th. 40 Days for Life will run from March
1st through April 9th. Please consider joining us in prayer, either
outside the clinic or in your personal prayer time. Many clinics
have closed as a result of these campaigns and many more hearts
have been transformed through the peaceful prayer witness. Your
prayerful attendance is welcome on any day.

330 mothers have changed their minds and decided to keep their
babies in Germantown since December 5, 2010 as a result of YOUR
pro-life PRESENCE, SUPPORT, and PRAYERS.
As you already know, The U.S. Congressional Select Investigative
Panel on Infant Lives is investigating late-term abortionist LeRoy
Carhart and his Germantown office where five abortion patients
were transported by emergency responders to the hospital since
December. Chairwoman Marsha Blackburn, a leading pro-life Congresswoman,
said she was disturbed to learn how many women Carharts
abortion facility appears to have injured in the past few months.
We have an obligation to protect the most vulnerable at
all stages of life, Blackburn said. Reports regarding
the Germantown clinic are deeply troubling, both for the sake
of babies whose lives are ended so close toand possibly
even afterbirth and for the sake of the women who have been
rushed from that clinic to the hospital with increasing frequency.
The Congressional Committee has subpoenaed Carhart to come to
Capitol Hill for a Deposition this Monday, June 13th.
Join us there as we rally to continue waving the red flag on this
horrendous practice of late term abortion, and Carharts
trail of injured/dead women read up on all the emergencies
The Democrats have already tried to shut this investigation down
YOUR presence is VITAL! Lets show the committee our
gratitude for this investigation BE THERE.
Lives saved by strong presence on Monday vigils at Germantown
YOU ARE Making a Difference
Between Life and Death! Since December 2010, more than 135
mothers so far have changed their minds and decided
to keep their babies as a result of your pro-life witness in Germantown.
Many more lives are saved by the ongoing all week long efforts
by dedicated side walk councilors.
Dr. Grace Morrison has issued a renewed call for a strong presence
Wisteria Dr. (near the Germantown late term abortion clinic) on
Mondays mornings (8am - 10am). It is on Monday mornings that the
gruesome and brutal three day process of late term abortions begins.
The Monday morning vigils represent the best opportunity to help
women and their unborn children. Please consider joining the nearly
100 people there every week. The strong presence is making a huge
difference! Prayer and your presence HELPS these women and gives
their babies a chance to be born. There will be no graphic signs
will be present each second Monday of the month.
For more information and to sign up for ongoing updates, please
see the Pray for Germantown
The mission on Monday mornings:
--To come in mass numbers to make the public aware of the horrors
of abortion --especially late-term abortion!
--To be present when the babies are killed by lethal injection--which
happens on Monday mornings!
--If possible, to direct the mothers to the new pregnancy referral
center across from the mill.
- Holiday Rosary Tours
On various holy days and holiday days, Pro-Life members
from a number of local parishes gather to say the Rosary at the
four abortuaries in our area, e.g. Germantown, Shady Grove, Rockville
and Silver Spring. The group concentrates on prayer, i.e., there
are no protests, demonstrations, police involvement with this
group of souls from various parishes. For more information, please
contact Bill Luksic at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Project Mustard
Please consider joining thousands in the Mustard Seed Project
by sending a letter each month to a designated corporation asking
them to stop supporting Planned Parenthood, the world's largest
abortion provider. It doesn't take long and sample letters are
provided - you can use selected parts of the sample letter or
you can write your own. You can save your letter to use again
next month; just change the addressee and date. Or, since new
facts about PP are provided periodically, you may want to update
Please remember to always keep the tone of your letter respectful
and polite. Letters definitely make a difference! At Least 294
corporations have stopped supporting PP. For more information
and to get notices about the monthly letters, please contact John.
