Dear Pro-Life Friend,
Happy Solemnity of St. Joseph & Annunciation of the Lord (which we celebrate on March 19th and March 25th)!

What great pro-life feasts we have in the middle of Lent!?

May the foster father of Jesus and the Mother who said "YES" pray for us, that we too may welcome LIFE with ever greater generosity and resolve.
Pregnancy Help Center UPDATE
I also have some great news to share: the South Dade Pregnancy Help Center will extend its hours starting March 23rd! The new hours of operation will be:
South Dade Pregnancy Help Center
Hours of Operation:

Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat: 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Thurs: 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Mon: Closed
I am so proud of our South Dade Pregnancy Help Center staff and volunteers for making this dream a reality. The extended hours will better serve our existing clients and make it possible to reach more women and their families.

Thanks be to God for this step in the right direction as we work to save more lives & souls.

We currently have a couple Pregnancy Help Center staff positions left to fill at our Central Broward and North Dade locations, and we're constantly welcoming new volunteers. Respect Life Ministry is growing and thriving thanks to the prayers and financial support of friends like you. You can make your Lenten offering by donating directly to Respect Life Ministry.

May the Lord grant you and your family a very blessed Holy Week!

For Life,

North Broward Ultrasound Blessing

Bishop Enrique Delgado blessed a new ultrasound machine at the North Broward Pregnancy Help Center thanks to a generous donor and facilitation from the St. Katherine Drexel Knights of Columbus.

“It will give women a clearer picture of the life they are carrying,” said Rosita Porras, the center’s ultrasound technician. “Seeing the baby almost always changes the mind of women contemplating abortion. Now, they will have an improved image to see and a better photo that I give them.”
