Nine months of prayer for our spiritual babies in the womb has passed. Week after week we have followed their growth in the St. Raphael Parish bulletin. Now, let’s celebrate their birth by helping pregnant women and babies in need! Please consider donating items to Birthchoice to show your support for their decision to choose life. Birthchoice is a pregnancy resource center here in Raleigh that provides free ultrasounds, prenatal care and counseling. We will be collecting baby items in the Atrium every weekend in October and then will have these donations blessed at the 5:30PM Mass on Sunday, October 29th. We will also be collecting items in the Preschool the week of October 23-27th. And as always, prayers for all involved are also very much appreciated.
