Pray to End Abortion

Abortions are performed at Planned Parenthood, 3105 N. 93rd St. every Monday and Thursday approximately between the hours of 8 am and 11 am.   Prayer Warriors are urgently needed at the site during these hours. Our prayer presence and sidewalk counseling are moved to Mondays, since that is when most abortions are performed.  Fr. Frank Baumert will lead prayer every third Monday of the month, between 11 am and Noon.   Prayer warriors are urgently needed at the site during these hours.   Saturdays there is a structured hour of prayer from 10-11 am.  There is an urgent need to pray at the Bellevue Facility on Thursdays, especially 10-12 am and 3-5:30 pm, Fridays 7:30 - 9:30.   If YOU are waiting for the call to serve...this is it!

Moms of Faith

Moms of Faith meet on the first and third Tuesday of every month at 8 pm in the SJ Church Library.   Our group of Catholic moms has been meeting since 2013 to talk about Natural Family Planning.   We come together with different comfort levels with NFP; different stages in our lives and different stories to share.   We support each other as we figure out the blessing of NFP in our faith, in our motherhood journey and in our marriages.   Our meetings include prayer, questions, discussion, book reviews and discovering wonderful friendships!   If this interests you at all....if you have struggles with NFP and just want to talk with other moms, or if you're just exploring the idea of practicing NFP and want to hear other perspectives, or if you're an NFP veteran that wants to help other ladies, Please Join Us!   This is a great opportunity to join a wonderful group of moms.

Pro-Life Rosary

The first Sunday of each month, St. James for Life leads a pro-life rosary at 9 am in front of the Blessed Virgin Mary Statue.    All are invited to join in when you arrive for 9:30 Mass and from wherever you are seated.   Perhaps you'd like to consider making this a monthly commitment to pray for the protection of innocent life.
