Seven post day and here is another one. I am plugging the Sisters of Life today. One of the marks of this congregation is that the entire ministry is one of supporting Life, as against abortion and contraception. If a young woman is considering a vocation which is timely and highly needed, here is an order to choose. The link to their beautiful website is here
The sisters also have a retreat house, which may be seen at this link.
If you can send them a donation, do so. If you are considering a vocation to the religious life, consider them. Pray. We could use them in Europe.
The sisters support Courage, and here is a note on the upcoming special conference at which they shall take part.
National Courage Conference
July 19-22, 2012 l Emmitsburg, MD
Join our Sisters at the National Courage Conference this summer.
From the Courage website:
“Courage, an apostolate of the Catholic Church, ministers to persons with same-sex attraction and their loved ones. We have been endorsed by the Pontifical Council for the Family and our beloved John Paul II said of this ministry, ”COURAGE is doing the work of God!” We also have an outreach called EnCourage which ministers to relatives, spouses, and friends of persons with same-sex attraction.”
This year’s conference features many excellent speakers including: Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Fr. Paul Check, Msgr. John Esseff, Dr. Rick Fitzgibbons, Andrew Gill, Th.Psy.D., Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR, Fr. Jeffrey Keefe, Timothy G. Lock, Ph.D., Bishop Thomas Olmsted, Fr. Paul Scalia & Sean Stevens, Ph.D.
