Announcement- Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 1-27-2013 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – For years Sister Rosalia Bauer was a regular on the sidewalks outside of Rockford’s abortion mill either sidewalk counseling or praying the Rosary. Her joyful spirit and strong witness for life has inspired many of us. When Sister was not defending life at the Rockford abortion mill she was praying and working at St. Jude Parish in Beloit. Now after decades of service in this area Sister Rosalia is returning to her mother house of the Franciscan Sister’s of Perpetual Adoration in La Crosse WI.
Sister Rosalia recently said about her vocation, “Being a Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration for 60 years is a deeply grounded blessing. My experiences as an R.N. and our community’s first family nurse practitioner have led me to serve people from the womb to the tomb in many homes, the United States and Thailand. What a privilege, being a member of this Franciscan community where Eucharistic spirituality is the focus and prayer/service is an integral part of our lives. All praise and all thanksgiving be every moment thine.”
As our way of honoring Sister Rosalia for her years of dedication to the pro-life cause in Rockford and beyond, all are invited to an informal breakfast to say good-bye to Sister at the Stockholm Inn located at 2420 Charles St, on Friday Feb 8, at 9:30am.
We have a room reserved to seat 20 people so please email Kevin to reserve a spot. email@example.com
Sister Rosalia has touched so many lives, especially in Rockford that it would be difficult to have a large enough venue for all those who would like to wish her well and Godspeed.

All of us at Pro Life Corner extend our love and gratitude to a great lady and devoted daughter of the Church.
