Annual Baby Shower

It's time for our annual Baby Shower in support of the Women's Center of Evergreen Park! Items needed are 0-6 sleepers, onesies and clothing, blankets, bibs and bottles.  The weekend of April 27 & 28 bring baby items and pick up an empty baby bottle.  Challenge the family to fill the baby bottle with spare change and return it on Mother's Day weekend, May 11 & 12.  All proceeds go to help the Women's Center support Mom and babies in crisis pregnancies who may be vulnerable to abortion.  

New this year!   We have set up an Amazon Baby Registry to make supporting our Baby Shower super simple! Follow this link and your gift choice will be sent directly to the Women's Center via Our Lady of Knock Catholic Church in Calumet City. 

Changing Minds

Lila Rose and Live Action have been educating people on what abortion really is.  Many people think they understand the procedure...watch as these people change their minds!  Click here to watch.

Abby Johnson Testifies

Abby Johnson worked in a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas for 8 years.  One day, she was asked to assist an abortion doctor during a procedure.  She left that day and has spent her life proclaiming the truth of abortion and the lies of Planned Parenthood.  She testified in Kentucky this February and explains a first trimester abortion.  See her testimony here.
