Spiritual Adoption Program

Respect Life Spiritual Adoption Program

Everyone loves the beauty and innocence of a baby.  As an expression of that love, St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church announces an adoption program for young and old alike.  The members of St. Joan of Arc parish family will soon have the opportunity to "spiritually adopt" a child wo is newly conceived this month.  Not all babies make it to birth.  many parents tragically experience the loss of a child to miscarriage or premature birth.  And more than 3,000 babies lose their lives to abortion each day.  These  are the babies you are being asked to "adopt" simply by praying for him or her each day.  You may "adopt" a child individually or as a family by signing up during the weekend of august 14th or 15th.  Prayer pledges will be collected after Mass.  It is suggested that you name the child for whom you will be praying, which will remind you that, although you may never meet the child in this life, you truly are praying for a specific child who needs your prayers.  Watch the bulletin for monthly reports describing "your baby's" development.  On Mother's Day weekend, 2022, we will celebrate the "births' of our spiritually adopted babies by collecting donation which will be given to mothers in need of assistance through Alpha's Glory.  There are millions of unborn babies desperately in need of your prayers.  Won't you please "Spiritually adopt" one and share the love for life that God has given you?
