Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

Mary's Shelter Benefit Success!
Mary's Shelter Arts and Craft Benefit - SUCCESS!A note from Adele Anderson...
I am still smiling from yesterday's 2011 Mary's Shelter Arts and Crafts Benefit. The Hawke St. shelter was a perfect venue for the show...warm, inviting, and personal. So many smiling faces of volunteers and patrons came through the front door to support the incredible charity that is Mary's Shelter. What a grace-filled gift as we head toward Advent!
OK...here is the great news...
We made approximately $2,800!!
More importantly, I saw some unfamiliar faces, and several women said they heard about the event from the newspaper. We can add these newcomers to those who are now aware of the work being done at Mary's Shelter. More pro-life support, more prayers, more donors.
None of this would be possible without the creativity, donated time and money, and gorgeous arts and crafts that all of you donated. Every item was beautifully crafted and one patron said she felt like she was in a boutique...ooo-la-la!
Thanks be to God who has blessed us with our talents which He allows us to use for the building of the Kingdom here on earth.
