Announcements (August 14, 2005)

1. Our two-bit collection is for our parish Birthright. Birthright is a nonprofit organization whose goal is to provide a center where any pregnant woman will find a loving, nonjudgmental environment that supports her decision to carry her child to term. Birthright’s positive support and advocacy strive to help the mother mobilize her own resources and those of the community to face the future and to plan constructively for herself and her child. The Birthright satelite is located in the Ailbe House. Your support is appreciated. Above all, we need volunteers who can take the training to become a Duty Volunteer : To offer person-to-person help; giving love, understanding and all needed moral, emotional and practical support to every pregnant woman who requests it. Duty volunteers commit to a three-hour shift once a week. Please call Kathy at the number listed in the bulletin.
