St. Jude Pro-Life Ministry

A Forum and Connection to the Pro-Life Movement for Men Who Defend Life and Women Who Nurture It

The Fall 40 Days for Life starts on Wednesday September 23rd.  Over 17,000 babies have been saved during this prayer vigil at the locations of Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics since 2007, and Project Defending Life is once again hosting this event.

The campaign is requesting special days of prayer &/or presence for each parish. St. Jude’s days are October 1 & 14. On those days please say a prayer for human beings in the womb who are threatened with abortion and their troubled mothers. Consider praying in front of Planned Parenthood on those days, or any day that fits your schedule. For more information, contact Doug Price, 890-2900,

The mission of St. Jude's Pro-Life Ministry is to not only prepare troops who advance the culture of life, usher the Church into the New Pentecost, and establish the Kingdom of God, but to recruit more troops who are great in strength and zeal so that we prepare each other for death and are presented "without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish" (Ephesians 5:27). 

This apostolate advances the culture of life, ushers the Church into the New Pentecost, and establishes the Kingdom of God by obeying the Two Greatest Commandments and praying (or loving God) and working (or loving our brother). 

We, the members of this apostolate, emphasize prayer not only because we must adore God and acknowledge that He is God and we are not, to thank Him for His blessings, to beg for forgiveness and help for our brother and ourselves, but because this apostolate and its mission is sustained by God alone. By praying, we will satisfy God’s justice and make reparations for our sins and the sins of the whole world, honor Mary for sacrificing herself and her Son so that her Son could glorify His Father and atone for our sins and those of the whole world, and adore Jesus Christ by imitating Him—that is, by allowing the Holy Ghost to split us wide open on the mount of our crucifixions so that that we may glorify His Father and honor His Mother.

In short, we will "present [our] bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God" (Romans 12:1) and obey Mary and “[d]o whatever [Jesus] tells [us]” (John 2:5): “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the he name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19-20).

This apostolate is involved in the pro-life movement in all issues (abortion, euthanasia, human sexuality), and educates the community, communicates and coordinates events with other apostolates, fundraises for itself and other apostolates, and prays and speaks for the unborn on the sidewalks. 

Ultimately, our mission is to not only have troops who advance a culture of life by praying and working, but who are true shock troops—that is, troops who are purified, perfected, sanctified, and saved because we eat the Flesh, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist and drink the milk of Mary, use her weapon of choice, the Rosary, and fight under the banner, patronage, and title of Virgin Most Powerful.

It is then that our arrogance will be transformed into humility, our fear into courage, and our lukewarmness into a fiery love where we follow Mary’s example, accept the Holy Ghost’s wedding proposal and boldly answer at the foot of the Cross, “I, _____, take you, Jesus Christ, to be my lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.”
