We are in the planning stages for a Club Zion trip to attend the March For Life 2021. We are tentatively looking at departing Tuesday January 26th and returning Saturday January 30th. We will be publishing more information as far as costs, transportation, lodging, and meals as we get closer. There is a March for Life signup sheet located at the reception table in the Church lobby. Pictured below is the CZ group that attended the March for Life last January 2020, led by Pastor Keith.
We are working with the headquarters of the “Priests for Life” https://www.priestsforlife.org/ which is located in Titusville. The Priests for Life refers to a very specific effort to galvanize the clergy to preach, teach, and mobilize their people more effectively in the effort to end abortion and euthanasia. On another level, Priests for Life represents a family of ministries that reach and enrich every aspect of the pro-life movement.

PREGNANCY INFORMATION FOR MEN – Do you think she’s pregnant? You are not alone in this situation. The two of you can get through this. She needs you now more than ever. It’s vitally important that you provide her with the support she needs –emotionally and physically. Here are some tips on how you do this. What to do:
- Talk with her and listen to her. Keep the lines of communication open between the two of you at all times. DO NOT close yourself off emotionally because this situation involves more than just you!
- Be there for her. She needs you now more than ever before.
- Talk with the people who care. In addition to keeping the lines of communication open between the two of you, it’s important to discuss the situation with parents and others who’ll be directly affected. Keeping this a secret will only add to the stress – yours and hers.
- Educate yourself. Collect information and seek advice from people you trust.
- Be honest with her and yourself. Own and share at all times how you feel. You’ll be surprised at how much it will help her to know that you share the same concerns. You’ll be surprised at what you learn about yourself. And you’ll be proud that you’re standing tall together!
What Not To Do:
- Don’t run from your responsibilities. The more you try to avoid this situation, the harder things will get for the three of you. Now. And forever.
- Don’t pressure her to do what you want. You both need to work together at all times. You’re a team now!
- Don’t stop communicating with her. Express your feelings and add your input whenever it’s needed. Show her your love!
IF you have had an abortion and need help!
Rachel’s Vineyard Post Abortion Ministry of the “Priests For Life” can help
What is Rachel’s Vineyard? Dr. Theresa Burke is the Founder of Rachel’s Vineyard – the largest post abortion ministry in the world. Her healing programs offer a unique sensory based treatment which integrates emotional, psychological and spiritual dimensions. https://www.rachelsvineyard.org/
Rachel’s Vineyard weekends for healing after abortion are offered throughout the year in locations across the United States and Canada, with additional sites around the world. Rachel’s Vineyard is a ministry of Priests for Life.
The program is an opportunity to examine your abortion experience, identify the ways that the loss has impacted you in the past and present, and helps to acknowledge any unresolved feelings that many individuals struggle with after abortion. Because of the emotional numbness and secrecy that often surrounds an abortion experience, conflicting emotions both during and after the event may remain unresolved. These buried feelings can surface later and may be symptoms of post abortion trauma.
The following is the contact in Central Florida to receive information for upcoming retreats: Rachel’s Vineyard Orlando/Central Florida 32802, Abortion Recovery Director Karen Reilly – AR Director Phone # 321-662-5097 – Email firstname.lastname@example.org – Website: http://www.rachelsvineyard.org

- Silent No More Awareness is a Campaign whereby Christians make the public aware of the devastation abortion brings to women and men. The campaign seeks to expose and heal the secrecy and silence surrounding the emotional and physical pain of abortion.
- The Campaign began November 11th, 2002. As of December 2019, the Silent No More Awareness Campaign has held 2,065 Gatherings in 17 countries & all 50 states with 6,469 women and men sharing their abortion testimonies. Testimonies have also been shared at 152 high schools and universities in the last 11 years, 5 in 2019.
- There are 2,862 testimonies posted on the Campaign website with 563 that are shared via video! Currently there are 19,483 people registered with the Campaign representing 77 countries.
- People who are not ready to join the Campaign, are invited to ‘register their regret’. So far, 6,324 women and 678 men have said they regret their abortion or lost fatherhood. 487 women and men have posted memorials to their children.
- 248 Women are listed who’s death are documented as being caused by abortion. http://www.SilentNoMore.com/DeathsFromAbortion.

- To learn more about sharing your story, please visit www.abortiontestimony.com.
- In 2011, we surveyed Campaign members; 328 surveys were returned – 310 women/18 men representing 450 abortions. More than ½ didn’t begin looking for healing until after 20 years. The longest was 36 years and the shortest was 1 month. The majority shared their testimony and gave us permission to share it.
- Many people responding to the survey made comments of how the campaign has positively impacted their lives.
- The Campaign is a project of Priests for Life and Anglicans for Life.
What are the Goals of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign?
- Reach out to people hurt after abortion, encouraging them to attend abortion after-care programs. Invite those who are ready to break the silence by speaking the truth about abortion’s negative consequences and the path to healing.
- Educate the public that abortion is harmful emotionally, physically and spiritually to women, men and families, so that it becomes unacceptable for anyone to recommend abortion as a ‘fix’ for a problem pregnancy.
- Share our personal testimonies of hurt and healing to help others avoid the pain of abortion.
How does the Silent No More Awareness Campaign Raise Awareness?
- Gatherings are held in public places nationwide featuring the voices of those who regret their abortions.

Prayer to End Abortion
Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life, And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters. I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion, Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the Resurrection of Your Son. I am ready to do my part in ending abortion. Today I commit myself Never to be silent, Never to be passive, Never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, And never to stop defending life Until all my brothers and sisters are protected, And our nation once again becomes A nation with liberty and justice Not just for some, but for all,
In His Name We Pray. Amen!
