Kick-Off Event/Prayer Launch for our 20th(!) Worcester Campaign

To kick-off our 20th campaign in Worcester, we will be joining with the other 40 DFL campaigns around the state for a combined event. We hope you can join us at the Betania II Retreat Center, 154 Summer St, Medway, for prayer, fellowship, and mutual encouragement as we are commissioned to take our peaceful, pro-life message to the streets in 5 different locations around MA.

The event, graciously organized by the Boston campaign leaders, will start with Sunday Mass at 4pm, followed by a talk by Teresa Tomeo at about 5:15pm, and a light meal of sandwiches, drinks, and desserts around 6pm. You are welcome to come for part of the event if you can't make the whole thing. If you plan to be there for the dinner, please RSVP to Pauline at 508-839-7674 so we can plan for food. There is no cost for this event.
