New York City -- Deacons for Life, a national ministry which is part of the Gospel of Life/Priests for Life Family of ministries, has announced a renewed launch of its efforts to network, equip and encourage deacons in their role as heralds and servants of the Gospel of Life.
A renewed website, at DeaconsForLife.org
, enables deacons to obtain resources for prayer and preaching, as well as connect with national pro-life action items. Some of the projects on the horizon include:
• National Voter Registration Sundays June 29 and July 6, to help voters prepare for the mid-term elections;
• “Turning the Hearts of Fathers,” an effort to assist Churches to proclaim healing to men affected by abortion;
• A call to the US Senate to schedule a vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act;
• Preparation for the National Day of Remembrance, an observance in September by which simultaneous memorial services are held at the gravesites of aborted children.
Assisting in the leadership of this effort, along with Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, are the following deacons:
Deacon Keith Fournier
Diocese of Richmond
Deacon Dominick Pastore
Archdiocese of Detroit
Deacon Tim Kennedy
Archdiocese of Newark
Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers
Archdiocese of Portland
