Dear Pastors, Youth Leaders and Church Representatives:

Can you believe that we are already sending you Church Notes for March??? Time is certainly flying, but our commitment remains steady and sure!

Enclosed you will find the March Church Notes, the flier/registration form for the LIFESPAN Baby Shower, the Hockey Night flier, and the 2015 LIFESPAN Resource Book patron/photo ad information and organization ad contract. Please post these fliers wherever possible and bring it to the attention of your pastor, youth group coordinators, pro-life groups and any other interested parties.

UPCOMING EVENTS: we hope that you can participate in some, if not all:

  • March 7th – Hockey Night Out! Make plans to join us at the Compuware Arena to watch the Plymouth Whalers! If you haven’t attended before, it is a really fun night, there is not a bad seat in the house and we get to sit together in the same section (section 114). Come out for fun, see some old friends and make some new ones while cheering on our local team! This is the last season that the Whalers will be at Compuware Arena, so don’t miss out on seeing them in action. Make sure to order your tickets today using the code: lifespan and bring a few friends! Check out the flier for more details.
  • March 8th – The largest Baby Shower in Michigan! Every year, LIFESPAN coordinates with local churches to gather much-needed baby supplies for about twenty pregnancy help centers. These pregnancy help centers are truly on the “front lines” and often make a crucial difference: please help support them in any way you can. I hope that your church has signed up for this wonderful event. By hosting a “baby shower” and acting as a drop-off location for items for the pregnancy help centers, we can make sure that the vital work of helping pregnant moms and their babies choose LIFE will continue to be fervently supported. If you parish cannot host a shower on March 8th, no problem: Baby Showers are scheduled at the convenience of the church, and we will work to make sure that your church is connected with a local pregnancy help center. The Pregnancy Help Centers direly need your support!
  • Patron/Photo Ads for the 2015 LIFESPAN Resource Book—Consider honoring members of your family with a photo ad. It is a great way to honor someone who is graduating, getting married, just had a baby, etc. Also, please consider showing your support by listing your name through a patron ad. Please call our office with any questions.
  • We are currently seeking advertisements for the Resource Book from individual patrons and from organizations. Please check with your pastor as to whether or not your parish has signed up for an ad in the 2015 LIFESPAN Resource Book. We want to make sure that all of our faith organizations are represented!
  • Plans are progressing for our next Church Rep. Meeting. SAVE THE DATE: April 12th!

Need additional copies of any of the fliers? Please contact our office and we will be glad to provide them for you. It is due to you and your commitment to LIFE that people find out about the many activities that LIFESPAN sponsors and learn about issues that impact the sanctity of LIFE, from conception until natural death.

Yours in LIFE,

Eileen Brandt

Director, Wayne County/Downriver Chapter
