OUR LADY OF PROVIDENCE

Our Lady of Providence, mother of grace and mercy,

Pray for us

Dedicated in memory of the unborn and to proclaim the

sanctity of life in all its stages.

“I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10)

“To all the members of the Church, the people of life and for life, I make this most urgent appeal, that together we may offer this world of ours new signs of hope and work to ensure that justice and solidarity will increase and that a new culture of human life will be affirmed, for the building of an authentic civilization of truth and love.” (Pope John Paul II)
