Hello, Everyone!

We’ve started the New Year and we are off and running!

Movement in Motion Bus Trip: LIFESPAN’s Movement in Motion Bus Trip will soon be heading to Washington, D.C. for January’s March for Life. The buses leave our area on the 18th of January. Many of those who went last year are making a repeat trip this year. These trips seem to revitalize our young people and make them true ambassadors for Life. Thanks for all you do to support them. Make sure to watch EWTN for the best coverage of the March for Life and turn to mainstream media to see if they provide any coverage of this amazing event!

Also, check in on social media. The hashtag #miLIFESPAN will be used on the images and videos that are shared from the youth who are the bus trip.

Rose Ceremony: This moving ceremony that commemorates the 45th anniversary of the devastating Roe v. Wade decision and honors the nearly 60 million lives lost through abortion will be held at Our Lady of Good Counsel on Wednesday, January 24th at 6 PM. Rosary starts at 5:30 PM, with the Mass at 6PM.

LIFESPAN’s Luminaries: We have candle kits all set up. This is a beautiful way to memorialize the nearly 60 million babies that have lost their lives due to abortion. These luminaries are put out for donation at area churches. People light the luminaries the evening of January 21st. Have questions? Interested in having luminaries available at your church? Call our office!

A Night of Hockey! Please join us for a fundraiser and fun—all in one! As long as we sell 35 tickets, we earn a percentage of each ticket sold; if we sell 50 or more tickets, we earn a larger percentage. What can be better than a great night of hockey, fellowship and fun? The tickets are only $10 and we will have them in the office. You can either pick up your tickets at our office or we will meet you at the arena on Feb. 2nd and give them to you before the game. The deadline to reserve your tickets is January 25th—contact us today to reserve your spot!!!

This is a “raffle year” for LIFESPAN. This year we will be sending a letter to all LIFESPAN members, telling them of the raffle and including 2 raffle tickets in the hope that they might be able to find someone, or two, who want to take a chance on $10,000!

The Largest Baby Shower in Michigan: Area churches/organizations are co-hosting LIFESPAN’s Baby Showers. If your church hasn’t yet signed up to co-host this amazing event that benefits over twenty local Pregnancy Help Centers, please contact us today!

Yours in LIFE,
Eileen Brandt
Director, Wayne County/Downriver Chapter
