Memorial Mass for Babies – Parents who have lost children due to miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies, abortion and other infant fatalities are invited to participate in a special “Memorial Mass”.  This Mass is scheduled for Tuesday, October 4th at 7:00PM at the Cathedral of the Epiphany.  Join us as we come together for support and prayer remembering these children who passed away before baptism.  During this Mass, parents may honor their lost children by having his/her name read aloud and a candle lit in his/her honor.

Midwest March for Life – Every January, for decades, there has been the March for Life in Washington D.C. The March commemorates the dreadful Roe v. Wade decision, which paved the way for abortion on demand. In recent years, the West Coast began their own January March for Life.

Now it’s OUR turn! Stand with us – March with us – for the 5th Annual Midwest March for Life on January 14th in Des Moines. Send the message throughout Iowa and the Midwest: We have not been silent! We will not be silent! We are the voice for the voiceless—the unborn, the infirm and the elderly. We will not rest until every life, born and unborn, is safe from the pervasive culture of death.

Rachel’s Vineyard – Rachel’s Vineyard weekend retreats are for any person who has struggled with the emotional or spiritual pain of an abortion.

The retreat is a very specific process designed to help you experience the mercy and compassion of God. It is also an opportunity to surface and release repressed feelings of anger, shame, guilt and grief.

There are many group exercises to help you grieve the loss of your unborn child and to receive and accept God’s forgiveness. The retreat concludes with a Memorial Service. The weekend will help your soul find a voice, and transform the pain of the past into love and hope.
