ProLifeCorner- – Freeport, Il – It’s here! For several weeks we have been waiting for a special car to arrive so we can present it to everyone. That day has arrived!

This car is a vintage automobile donated to the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary so they can raffle it off. This will mean a wonderful contribution to the restoration of the Madonna Renewal Center. The donor wishes to remain anonymous so we respect his/her wishes and can only say “Thank you and God bless you” whoever you may be. Continue reading →

ProLifeCorner- Aurora Illinois- by Staff- 40 days for Life Aurora and Beyond-

This fundraiser is scheduled for Monday – February 2, 2015 at the Hope Community Center from 4:30pm – 8:00pm. Please tell your churches, coworkers, family and friends.
God has given us a vision for 2015 that includes the hiring of a Client Services Director/Sexual Risk Avoidance Specialist. He not only brought forth a very well-equipped young woman for this position who was hired 01/20/15 but He has also brought forth new volunteers to cover the main office of the Pregnancy Center to enable her and me to get out into the community to promote our new Sexual Risk Avoidance Program.
