Sanctity Of Life Report Annual Meeting January 2011

By Mary Jo Werbiansky

January – For the celebration of Sanctity of Life Sunday, Fr. Andrew presented an Icon of the Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth given to St. Luke by Frederica Matthews Green. The Icon shows Christ in Mary's womb blessing St. John the Baptist. Suzy Bozman, a new mom and member of St. Luke, spoke of her experience with doctors who recommended she have an abortion because one of her twins had spina bifida. She and husband, John, shared their personal story and their beautiful children with us as an example of the precious sanctity of life.

May-December – This year an attempt was made to collect diapers beginning in May for Mother's Day and continuing throughout the year. This did not net a larger collection.

October -Parishioners were invited to join other churches in the Life Chain on LaGrange Road in early October. Several parishioners joined this effort standing in silent and prayerful witness alongside hundreds of others. Later in October St. Luke parish hosted a table at the PASS Life Banquet. A donation was made and the opportunity to become an ongoing support was offered. Thanks to those who participated.

December - The annual Giving Tree collection was held. Families placed new items for babies around our Christmas tree. Those items were delivered to PASS.

Plans for 2012

January – Heather deBoer, site director of PASS Tinley Park, will speak to the teen class in January. Teens are encouraged to bring friends. Father Andrew will invite other parishes to join us.

February – A tentative date was set for a benefit concert for OCLife. This was to take place at St. Constantine and Helen on Feb. 20. Professional musicians associated with the parish planned to perform. Due to extenuating circumstances this event has been postponed. We hope to hold this benefit concert after Pascha, perhaps in the early summer.*
