A message from Sr. Lucy Marie, SV:
Join with the Sisters of Life – be part of a new generation building a culture of life. First Saturday ~~ Witness for Life
Sat, Oct 4th / 8am Mass at Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral, NYC
Fr. William Elder will be the main celebrant. Come to all or part of the morning.
Last month kicked off our First Saturday Witness for Life and about 65 people attended – here’s what one man who was there stated:
It was an honor to participate in this morning’s vigil. Most humbling of all was to see the commitment, sincerity, and holy energy of the young people of New York City, who love their Lord and their Church, and the unmistakable effect they have on history, here, today. I remain very moved by the whole experience. More than moved; uplifted, dignified, joyful. Thank you again for prodding me into the privilege of helping out in some small way.
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass begins our day in Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral (the Sisters of Life will provide a Schola), Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament follows, and people can either remain in the Church to adore our Lord or attend the rosary procession to the local abortion clinic.
Upon return from the clinic (approx 10:15am) we will have a social (complete with coffee and bagels) with a short (15 mins) presentation by the Sisters of Life. You will hear of concrete ways to be of service, as Co-Workers, helping vulnerable pregnant women that are currently being served by the Sisters.
Promote this to your friends and keep the spiritual success of this effort for Life in your daily prayers. God Bless You.
On September 9, Sr. Marie Pappas, host of “Pathways of Learning,” invited me on her show to discuss the Year of St. Paul. Over the course of the program we focused on many things, including the Apostle’s life, conversion, travels, and theology.
“Pathways of Learning” airs each Tuesday at 1:00 PM on Sirius 159, The Catholic Channel.

The Archdiocese of New York is announcing a new “Come and See” program for women discerning religious life. It will take place over the next five first Sundays.
Each Sunday program will be hosted by a different Religious Community and will consist of prayer, an introduction to the community’s life and mission through a study of its charism, and interaction with a sister from the community.
Those interested must register before September 30. For more information, please call Sr. Deanna Sabetta at 212-371-1011, ext. 2803, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
