Roe Events in Central Texas

Pro-Life Updates from Waco, Texas

John Pisciotta,
Director of Pro-Life Waco

In January, pro-lifers recognize the years since the 1973 dreadful Roe v Wade Supreme court decision and the growth of the pro-life movement that is saving lives and changing hearts each day.

1. Jan. 18 (Sunday) The first event in Central Texas is the “Sanctity of Life Family Picnic and Bake Sale” sponsored by the great folks at CareNet Pregnancy Center of Central Texas.11:00 - 12:00 pm at Waco Lion’s Den at 1716 42nd Street.

Food and fellowship! A great BBQ meal will be served for a donation. And there will be many out-of-this-world baked items. Weather permitting, Kiddieland will be open for your children. You all come out to have a good time and support a great organization.

2. Jan. 22 (Thursday) First annual Interstate-35 Pedestrian Overpass Demonstration near Baylor. I just received the main sign we will be using—4 feet by 36 feet.

This Pro-Life Waco demonstration happens on Roe Day--Thursday, January 22nd from 11:00 - 1:00 pm. We would love to have YOUR participation in this first (but not last) overpass demonstration in Waco. We need pro-lifers to hold signs and draw attention to our signs. Park your car in the lot of the new Chick Fill-A off 6th Street. Then walk less than a block to the entrance to the pedestrian overpass.

3. Jan. 24 - (Saturday) Car pool to the Rally for Life in Austin. Carpool departs at 11:00 am from the St. Mary’s Waco parking lot at 15th and Columbus Ave. Let me know if you would like to join as either a driver and a rider. March up Congress Avenue starts at 1:00 pm. Then speeches at the steps of the capital. We should be back in Waco by 5:00 pm.

4. Jan. 26 (Monday) Pro-Life Waco’s speaker will be Dr. Sandra Hapenney, delivering a much-needed seminar entitled Strategies to Protect Your Teenagers Innocence.

Sandra is a mom, grandmother and a successful teacher at Reicher Catholic High School in Waco. The program is designed for parents, grandparents, pastors, teachers, and ALL who mentor teens now or in the future. Sandra Hapenney has had great success with chastity in her curriculum at Reicher High. Location is Knights of Columbus Hall at 5515 Sanger Avenue. The Hapenney presentation is 7:00 - 9:00 pm.

A free and special Italian meatball sandwich meal will be served from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. All individuals/families attending will receive a free book or CD. You can access a PDF flyer for the seminar here.

Please share by printing and sending to others as an attachment. I regard this as Pro-Life Waco’s most significant new initiative for 2015.

PS On January 27th, I will fly to Nashville to meet my new baby grandson. I am so each to see him!!
