Sanctity Of Life Report Annual Meeting January 2006
By Mary Jo Werbiansky
Bulletin inserts from National Right to Life were placed in the bulletins on Sanctity of Life Sunday. I don't remember if the speaker (birth mother) Michaelyn Sloan brought was last year or the year before. The year previous to the speaker we had the PASS team speak to our youth. Most years we have a speaker from PASS, a teen presentation, etc. I do not have plans for a speaker this year.
Pearl participated in the Walk on Washington and plans to do so again this year.
Diaper Drop - parishioners were encouraged to drop a package of diapers in a basket on Mother's Day Unfortunately, I only received 4-5 packages.
Hike for Life - There has been little interest in this event now that is has moved south to Frankfort. Information is provided each year. It is a family event with face painting, a hike, outdoor games and usually a teen rock band. It is on Mother's Day weekend, which is appropriate, but also a time when families are busy with other activities.

Life Chain - about 7 people represented St Luke. Sue Lisowski and sons, Pearl, Fr Jonas's sister, Helen, Deacon Andrew, Father Andrew and myself were present.
PASS Banquet - We filled one table plus 2-3 extra seats. Those attending made their own commitments in addition to the church donation. The speaker this year did an excellent job. Lee took notes and planned to write up comments (for the evangelist?)
Annual Giving Tree for PASS. Four large bags were filled with diapers, undershirts, etc for babies. Delivered to PASS this week.
I would like to request that St Luke offset the cost of the trip for Pearl. She is our lone representative.
