October is Respect Life Month

Baby Bottle Drive
In an effort to educate and offer help to mothers, fathers and their unborn babies, the St. Francis Borgia Respect Life ministry is coordinating a baby bottle drive next weekend, Oct. 6-7.
All of the proceeds collected will go to Pro-Life Wisconsin, The Women’s Support Center and The Women’s Care Center.
To participate, please take a baby bottle from the gathering space after Mass next weekend. Then collect change, bills and checks (made payable to Pro-Life Wisconsin) and return the bottle with those in it on the weekend of Oct. 27-28. Wisconsin moms, dads and their babies will be so grateful!

Celebrate Humanae Vitae’s 50th anniversary
Learn Natural Family Planning! Did you know that all Christian churches until 1930 taught that contraception is morally unacceptable? Find out why the Catholic Church still upholds this teaching. Fall classes in Cedarburg are forming now. Call 262-376-7615 to register.
Also visit www.ccli.org for more information; Google “Humanae Vitae” to read Pope Paul VI’s teaching on the beauty of authentic marital love; and watch the bulletin for events that will be taking place here at St. Francis Borgia.

40 Days for Life
The peaceful, prayerful 40 Days for Life campaign to carry out God’s plan to end abortions will run through Sunday, Nov. 4. The St. Francis Borgia Respect Life minis-try invites you to join them in prayer and fasting. They also invite you to consider joining others in a peaceful prayer vigil outside the Milwaukee abortion facility on Farwell Avenue to say the rosary and share a friendly smile with the scared women entering and leaving the abortion facility.
If you’re interested in going with other St. Francis Borgia parishioners, our slot is Thursdays from 9-11 a.m. Contact the Parish office.

The Rest of the Story….
(What You Didn’t Hear in Sex Ed)
Please join the Respect Life Ministry on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. in the church to hear Vicki Thorn speak. Her talk is geared for high school students and above. It is relevant to ALL adults, though, as she addresses the sociological changes since 1960 and how it has affected all of us in one way or another. The way she presents the biology and science is riveting. Her credentials are impressive – she has spoken in over 22 countries and prestigious universities such as Harvard and Georgetown. She started the Church’s post-abortion ministry almost 30 years ago and sits on the Pontifical Academy for Life in Rome.
