MOVIE – “THE MATTER OF LIFE”
October 22nd from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The Saint James Rosary Altar Society is sponsoring the viewing of the movie The Matter of Life in the Social Hall. This movie addresses the question, "When does life begin?" The documentary discusses the abortion industry and the long term effects abortion has on the mother, father, family, our nation and society. It is more important than ever to know where we stand on abortion and why. The movie also offers hope for all those who thought abortion was their only option.
Mrs. Carolyn Cannizzaro, Director of Pro-Life Advocacy at Catholic Charities, will be available to answer any questions you may have after the viewing. For questions, please contact Betty Nemchik at 724-668-7436 or the Parish Office at 724-668-2829. Refreshments will be served. Warning: This content may not be suitable for all audiences.
