Worldwide there have been 297 babies saved! Thank you to all who have stood as prayer volunteers to be a witness to all that God is the author of life and no one has the right to take the life of another.

COMMEMORATION OF ALL THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED (ALL SOULS’ DAY) First Reading: Wisdom 3: 1-9 Those who left this earth before us are at peace, in the hands of God. The Lord is their King forever, and His grace, mercy and love are with His elect. Second Reading: Romans 5: 5-11 Rejoice in our Lord Jesus Christ! For through His death and resurrection we have been reconciled and shall have eternal life. By the power of the Holy Spirit God has given us hope, and hope does not disappoint. Gospel: John 6: 37-40 Jesus calls Himself the Bread of God, the giver of life to the world. True bread from heaven, not the manna Moses fed his people in the desert. Through the Eucharist we remember, celebrate and believe. All who believe in Him will have eternal life, and the Father will raise them up on the last day. ©2008 Bon Venture Services, Inc.
