Vatican reiterates that homosexuals shouldn’t be priests

Dec 17 Sat Pro-Life Prayer vigil but no Mass as Fr. Reid can no longer make it. On the Sidewalk across from Planned Parenthood, Pleasant St. Worcester anytime between 8-11am

Priests for Life has been and continues to help President-elect Trump advance the Pro-Life Cause, with;

1. The “Catholic Outreach” project that Priests for Life was asked to spearhead. Remember what we were told: “You’re the only ones who can do this.” And we did it!
2. Our closing weekend Priests for Life ad that ran in every diocesan newspaper in Florida and dioceses in other states. Our ad made a huge impact with Catholic voters.
3. Our ongoing programs on EWTN -- and the preaching that our fulltime associate Fr. Stephen Imbarrato did on the network up to and including Election Day -- reached tens of millions of voters.
4. Dr. Alveda King and our Civil Rights for the Unborn outreach into the Black community was extremely active in key states. You’ve probably read or heard the news media telling everyone Trump only received 8% of the Black vote. And while that’s probably true nationwide, in key states like Florida and Pennsylvania he received as much as 18% of the Black vote!
Help if you can
