40 DAYS FOR LIFE
Tuesday, October 23 ~ from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm in front of Planned Parenthood in Pittsburgh
We need volunteers for 40 Days for Life on Tuesday, October 23rd, to peacefully pray with us in front of Planned Parenthood in Pittsburgh on Liberty Ave (a safe, very visible, and well travel neighborhood) from 1- 5pm. We will be caravanning from Big Lot parking lot at 11:30 am, and have room for anyone who doesn’t want to drive. We will be taking breaks in shifts as there are places to eat, and use the bathroom within walking distance.
As a part of the 40 Days for Life campaign we are joining with other churches and volunteers in the Pittsburgh area, throughout the country, and world, to pray and fast for unborn children, mothers and fathers, as well as abortion workers. 40 Days for Life trusts in God’s promise of mercy and love, that God hears our prayers, and that the best way to bring about change is through love, prayer and fasting. 40 Days has been so successful in saving lives and supporting mothers who want a choice other than abortion. Please help us make a difference. Help us be a visible sign of God’s love in a very dark place. Wherever there is great evil, God pours out even greater grace. We have truly felt His grace and presence with us as we pray in front of Planned Parenthood. For more information or to sign up call Kim Cardella, 724-499-5256.
THANK YOU ALL WHO PARTICIPATED & PRAYED during LIFE CHAIN OF HOPE on Oct. 7th!

AMEN TO ACTION ~ Nov. 23 ~ VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
On the day after Thanksgiving, thousands are expected at David L. Lawrence Convention Center to sing, pray, celebrate and pack over one million meals for the hungry. This is the second annual “Amen to Action” event which inspired over 3,000 volunteers in November 2017 to pack 1,014,366 meals for their Pittsburgh community. Meals were packed using a system developed by the Meals of Hope organization then delivered to those in need through the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. The event sold out and broke records for packing the most meals in one day in a single location.
“Amen to Action” was founded by a group of Pittsburgh clergy and lay leaders with the shared vision: “to connect people of all faiths, creating a platform of harmony and amassing spiritual capital more potent than all the coal in the hills and steel in the mills—and in so doing, lead Pittsburgh to become a spiritual power plant for the rest of the world.” The Amen to Action team invites the community of Pittsburgh to register and/or donate to the 2nd annual “Amen to Action” event taking place on Friday, November 23rd at David L. Lawrence Convention Center. For more details visit https://www.amentoaction.org.
Magnificat Pittsburgh prayer breakfast on Sat., Nov. 17, from 9 a.m.
to Noon at the Marriott, (Rt. 228) Cranberry Twp. (New Location). Hear Emily Stimson Chapman tell a faith journey you won’t forget. A nominal Catholic with little catechesis, she left the Church, being drawn to Evangelical Christians. She returned to Catholicism after she was challenged to learn about the Catholic faith and Scripture. She struggled with anorexia but then encountered the Theology of the Body which redeemed her relationship with food and helped her rediscover the Eucharist. She waited to find her husband and then waited through an adoption process she called beautiful and terrifying. Emily is a Catholic writer, book author, blogger, and speaker. Emily’s husband is Chris Chapman who works for the Diocese of Pittsburgh, Secretariat for Leadership Development and Evangelization.
