Respect Life Ministry
e-newsletter | June 30, 2021
Dear Pro-Life Friend,
Much has happened since our last newsletter-- not least of all, I had a baby!

Meet Teresa, born April 14th at the Hollywood Birth Center.
Thank you for all your prayers, for sharing our joy and celebrating this new life with us!

But Teresa's not the only one who's new around here.

Allow me to introduce you to Monica Molina, our new Program Coordinator at the Central Broward Pregnancy Help Center in Fort Lauderdale.
Monica shared that: "Coming into this position was definitely a very clear calling and ever since I started working here, it has proven to be nothing short of a blessing. It is an honor to able to be in a position to be able to help empower parents into seeing the beauty of the life the Lord has created."

Please join me in extending a warm welcome to Monica.
And I'm sure you heard the exciting news last month that the U.S. Supreme Court will be taking up the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, "which some legal experts have said presents the greatest chance in decades to substantially alter or reverse the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide."

Friends, as we celebrate Independence Day this weekend, let's pray for our country, especially:

  • for religious liberty, so that we may continue preaching the Gospel of Life in word and deed, &

  • that one day the right to LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness may be extended to all, including the most vulnerable among us: unborn children.

For Life,

Rebecca Brady
Director, Respect Life Ministry
Secretariat for Parish Life, Archdiocese of Miami

Pregnancy Help Centers
Thank you so much to everyone, especially our parish representatives and core teams, who helped run Baby Bottle Drives and Mother's Day Collections benefiting our pregnancy help centers. Please join me on congratulating the following parishes on their FY 2020-2021 fundraising events:
The money raised goes directly to our pregnancy help centers which provide free and confidential life-affirming services to abortion-vulnerable women and their families. Our five pregnancy help center locations had 6,410 visits serving 1,619 babies and their parents this fiscal year.

There's still time for your parish to host it's Baby Bottle Drive for the Walking with Moms initiative! Call your Program Coordinator for more information about hosting a fundraiser in support of your local Pregnancy Help Center.
