Surviving Divorce is a 12-week program presented on Tuesday evenings, 7 to 8:30 pm,  in the St. Joseph Parish Life Center, Wapakoneta. Beginning on February 6, the video-based series is for the newly separated and divorced, as well as for those struggling with issues years later.  Surviving Divorce participants will find answers to their questions, restore hope, and begin authentic healing. A $25 donation from participants covers the cost of materials, but is voluntary. For more information, contact the St. Joseph Church office, 419/738-2115.

DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD - From the Office of the Archbishop

posted Jul 30, 2015, 12:14 PM by Cindy Walkup   [ updated Dec 11, 2015, 8:23 AM by Beth Klopfenstein ]

Recently released videos in which officials of Planned Parenthood traffic in human organs, tissues, and body parts from their abortion clinics are chilling and appalling. They display a callous disrespect for human life. Staff from the Family and Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese took part in “Women Betrayed” rally at Planned Parenthood’s Cincinnati clinic on July 28 to protest this outrage.

However, we need to do more than raise our voices. I urge Catholics and all people of good will to write to their representatives in state and national government, asking them to stop the flow of your tax dollars to Planned Parenthood. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has supported defunding for many years. Planned Parenthood received more than $1.3 million in state funds from Ohio and $500 million in federal funds in fiscal 2013-2014.

Please also support a pro-life pregnancy center that helps women in unintended pregnancies, providing many needed services. You can find a list of them at  http://www.catholiccincinnati.org/ministries-offices/family-life/respect-life/pregnancy-coalition-resource-page/ If you have had or participated in an abortion and suffer remorse, please know that the Church’s post-abortion healing ministry, Project Rachel, stands ready to offer compassionate assistance.
