Dear Pastors and Pro-Life Leaders:
Please join the Central California pro-life community in welcoming
Monsignor Philip J. Reilly, Executive Director of The Helpers of God's
Precious Infants and Resident Chaplain at The Monastery of the Precious
Blood, Brooklyn, New York. Monsignor has lead numerous prayer vigils at
killing centers throughout this country and abroad, with Bishop Thomas V.
Daily of Queens, the late Cardinal O'Connor of New York, and His Eminence
Roger Cardinal Mahoney of Los Angeles to name a few. These prayerful vigils
along with compassionate offers of real help are bringing the tangible
presence of the Body of Christ to where the unborn are so unjustly killed,
and families torn.
Monsignor's visit proves to give our pro-life community very tangible
ways to bring prayerful presence, counseling to those seeking abortion and
after abortion, and practical ways to establish the Culture of Life. Some
questions that will be addressed:
- What is the culture of death?
- What is the modern day Calvary?
- What does the Body of Christ say and do at Calvary?
- What culture are we leaving our children?
- How can I be an effective witness?
- How does saving lives mean saving souls?
Hear about how an Atlantic City casino operator became a pro-life
sidewalk counselor and was used for the conversion of the abortionist,
through the mighty grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Monsignor has numerous
other stories to share of God's abundant love and grace in his 20 plus years
in pro-life work.
We hope that you will attend one of the enclosed schedule of events.
