An update coming late in time...from Floriday!

This weekend, 16-18 September, is time for the Annual Florida Statewide Respect Life Conference (www.dovrespectlife.org). It's being hosted by my adopted Diocese, the Diocese of Venice here, and the main topic for consideration is the 10th anniversary of H.H. Pope John Paul II's encyclical, Humanae Vitae regarding the dignity of human life. Should be a lot of fun.

In other Ave Maria Students for Life news, yesterday, 15 September, to commemorate the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, a group of roughly 70 students went to the local Planned Parenthood and held a prayerful protest throughout the day (in three separate shifts). While we didn't have the opportunity to talk to many of the patrons of the business, we got an awful lot of praying done. This is the 32nd year Planned Parenthood's been in Collier County, and we're pushing headlong to close this center. Pray for us that we may be successful in this effort!

Also, I'm reprising my position here at the SFL as the Assistant to the Chairman. Lot of fun, that.

Bye now, and God love you!
