(Knights of Columbus)
Our Novena Prayer will begin on Monday, October 26 and end on
Tuesday, November 3.
We will gather inside the church (enter through the PLC) at 7pm for the final novena prayer with a candlelight procession.
Please bring your masks and candles from home.

For each day, 1.) Reflect on the quote from Pope Francis, 2.) Say a decade of the rosary and 3.) Conclude with St. John Paul II’s prayer

Day 1 (October 26): “Even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and  the poor, are masterpieces of God’s creation ….”

Day 2 (October 27): “Human life is sacred and inviolable, and the use of prenatal diagnosis  for selective purposes must be strongly discouraged.”

Day 3 (October 28): “It is God who gives life.  Let us respect and love human life, especially vulnerable life in a mother’s womb.”

Day 4 (October 29): “Every child who, rather than being born, is condemned unjustly to being aborted, bears the face of Jesus Christ ….”

Day 5 (October 30): “The Church cannot be expected to change her position on this question. … It is not ‘progressive’ to try to resolve problems by eliminating a human life.”

Day 6 (October 31): “Our defense of the innocent unborn ... needs to be clear, firm and passionate, for at stake is the dignity of a human life ....”

Day 7 (November 1): “Equally sacred ... are the lives of the poor, those already born, the destitute, the abandoned and the underprivileged, the vulnerable infirm and elderly ....”

Day 8 (November 2): “All too often … people do not accept the ‘Gospel of Life’ but let themselves be led by ideologies and ways of thinking that block life, that do not respect life ….”

Day 9 (November 3): “Unborn children are always  to be welcomed; life is always to be protected and loved, from conception to its natural end.”

O Mary, bright dawn of the new world, Mother of the living, to you do we entrust the cause of life: Look down, O Mother, upon the vast numbers of babies not allowed to be born, of the poor whose lives are made difficult, of men and women who are victims of brutal violence, of the elderly and the sick killed by indifference or out of misguided mercy. Grant that all who believe in your Son may proclaim the Gospel of life with honesty and love to the people of our time. Obtain for them the grace to accept that Gospel as a gift ever new, the joy of celebrating it with gratitude throughout their lives and the courage to bear witness to it resolutely, in order to build, together with all people of good will, the civilization of truth and love, to the praise and glory of God, the Creator and lover of life. Amen. -St. John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae

Don't miss our Telethon and Variety Show on Nov. 1

Join the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry for an online variety show benefiting the capital campaign Building Fund. Viewers will enjoy an old-fashioned telethon featuring acts by local entertainers on Sunday, Nov. 1 starting at 6:30 p.m. A link to the event is free, and during the show, the Pantry will share news about our capital campaign which will expand hunger relief efforts in the community. The goal is for viewers to be inspired to donate online or by calling phone lines staffed by volunteers to help reach our campaign goal of $900,000 needed to transform our new, larger home.

Talented local performers (20) will be featured, including Gavin Coyle, the renowned Irish pop and folk singer and musician; Anima - Glen Ellyn Children’s Chorus; the McNulty Irish Dancers; the Youth Puppet Team from the Village Green Baptist Church; One Voice Outreach Choir; and comedian Amy Sherman. Additionally, famed artist Geoff Bevington - who recently painted the 28 feet by 17 feet Frida Kahlo mural on the Olive N' Vinnie's building in downtown Glen Ellyn - will complete a painting during the Telethon and it will be auctioned off via Zoom before the end of the event. Learn more.
