WALK AROUND HOLY FAMILY CHURCH FOR LIFE

01/24/2022


Council: 13861 - SANFORD

Project Description:

ST. THOMAS COUNCIL HELD ITS SECOND ANNUAL WALK AROUND HOLY FAMILY CHURCH ON SATURDAY NOON TO REMEMBER THAT 49 YEARS AGO ON THAT DAY, THE ROE V WADE DECISION LEGALIZED ABORTION. TO ACCOMPLISH THE ACTIVITY, THERE IS A FAIR AMOUNT OF PREPARATION. FIRST AND FOREMOST IS TO GET THE PASTOR’S PERMISSION TO HOLD THE MARCH, ENSURE THAT THE FACILITY IS AVAILABLE, ORDER 49 RED FLOWERS, AND PREPARE A SCRIPT FOR THE ROSARY AND OTHER COMMENTS FOR THE DAY. IN ADDITION, ARTICLES WERE PLACED IN THE PARISH BULLETIN FOR TWO WEEKS AND EMAILS WERE SENT TO ALL COUNCIL MEMBERS. OF COURSE, OUT OF OUR CONTROL WAS THE WEATHER. SINCE IT HAD BEEN BELOW ZERO THAT MORNING IT WAS DECIDED TO PRAY THE ROSARY AND RECITE OTHER PRAYERS IN THE CHURCH. EXCEPT FOR THE LAST ONE, PRIOR TO RECITING THE HAIL MARY A KNIGHT RANG A BELL REPRESENTING EACH YEAR OF THE ROE V WADE DECISION. UPON COMPLETION OF THE ROSARY, 49 RED CARNATIONS WERE HANDED TO ALL THOSE PRESENT. EVERYONE PROCEEDED TO WALK AROUND THE CHURCH, THROUGH THE SNOW AND ICE AND TO THE MEMORIAL TO THE UNBORN CHILD. AS EACH CARNATION WAS PLACED AT BASE OF THE MEMORIAL, A KNIGHT RANG THE BELL AGAIN TO REMIND US OF THE 49 YEARS THAT ABORTION WAS LEGALIZED. ALL LEFT THE EVENT GRATEFUL TO HAVE ATTENDED AND HOPEFUL THAT WE WILL NOT BE BACK NEXT YEAR TO DEMONSTRATE OUR OPOOSITION TO 50 YEARS OF LEGALIZED ABORTION.
