Life Chain for Human Life: This Year Life Chain will take place regionally, instead of on Niagara Falls Blvd. OLP is invited to join at the Church of Annunciation, Elma, on the corners of Clinton and Girdle and Schwartz Roads from 2PM to 3PM, Sunday October 4th to witness to the sanctity of human life. There is plenty of room to distance socially. There is also a statue of the Blessed Mother close to the corner intersection where participants can spread out safely.

What is Natural Family Planning?
Natural Family Planning provides couples a safe, effective means to achieve or avoid pregnancy and gain an understanding of their gift of fertility.
The NFP Family Network of Buffalo offers support and fellowship to couples based on the teachings of the Catholic Church, specifically in the areas of marriage, family and openness to life. The group sponsors couples nights out, theology enrichment meetings, marriage enrichment evenings, and family events. For more information, please contact the Network at email@example.com.

Prayer of Reparation
God and Father of Life, You have created every human person, and have opened the way for each to have eternal life. We live in the shadow of death. Tens of millions of Your children have been killed because of the Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion. Father, have mercy on us. Heal our land and accept our offering of prayer and penance. In Your love for us, turn back the scourge of abortion. May each of us exult in hearts full of hope and hands full of mercy and work together to build a culture of life.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
