Our Lady of Pompeii Respect Life Committee - 2015
The Respect Life Committee would like to invite everyone to take a moment to stop by the Respect Life sign in the front of the church (Our Lady of Pompeii Parish, 158 Laverack Ave, Lancaster, NY 14086). A lovely new "Garden for Life" has been established. A wonderful reminder to all, that God had you in His mind even before He created you. It's meant to encourage choices FOR LIFE as well as PRAYER for guidance and healing. Stop by and say a prayer! It's a beautiful spot to bring children to pray as well! We ask that you pray for the end of abortion and for the respect for every human life, from conception through natural death.
What is Natural Family Planning?
Natural Family Planning provides couples a safe effective means to achieve or avoid pregnancy and gain understanding of their gift of fertility.
The NFP Family Network of Buffalo offers support and fellowship to couples in the teachings of the Catholic faith, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. For information regarding introductory sessions, contact Catholic Fertility Care Centers of WNY at Sister’s Hospital at 716-862-1944, Mercy Hospital at 716-828-2438, or Mt. St. Mary’s Hospital in Lewiston at 716-298-2385.

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 or 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.
