MOQ PRO-LIFE January 2020 Events

Annual Baby Bottle Boomerang & Spiritual Adoption
January 18-19, 2020

We will be handing out empty Baby Bottles and Spiritual Adoption prayer cards at all Masses. Please pick up a baby bottle (or a baby bottle envelope) and fill it with your donations to benefit the Pregnancy Aid Clinic, Atlanta’s only Catholic pregnancy resource center. PAC’s mission is “Promoting the sanctity of human life, as recognized in the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.” PAC will be speaking at all Masses 1/18-1/19. The clinic offers women free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, education, resources, and earn-as-you-learn programs.

Please remember to return your baby bottle or envelope at all Masses the following week (or you may mail the envelope directly to the clinic). Thank you in advance for your generosity! That same weekend, you will also have the opportunity to spiritually adopt an unborn baby to pray for the next nine months. We will give you a prayer card, you name your spiritually adopted baby, and then remember to pray for them. In nine months we will hold our annual baby shower to celebrate the birth of our spiritually adopted babies.

White Cross and Sign Display | Roe vs. Wade
In memory of the fateful January 22, 1973, Roes vs. Wade Supreme Court decision which made abortion legal in the USA, we will install white crosses and signs at both church entrances. Please join us in praying for an end to abortion in our world.

January 22, 2020, at 9:30 am

Musical Notes

The 11AM Traditional Choir is looking for additional members. If you have a desire to worship God in song, can carry a tune, and can commit to a weekly rehearsal, we’d love to have you join us. We are working towards a fantastic Dedication Ceremony for the new Church.

Rehearsals are Thursdays from 7:30-9:00 pm upstairs in Room 202. The Children’s Choir will begin rehearsing soon. We will email all parents of previous cherubs and post a bulletin notice when we have a firm start date. The Children’s choir will be singing at many of the 8:30am masses later in the fall.

If you would like to participate in any of the music ministries or need further information, please contact Dan Marcacci, Director of Music via email:
