‘Face the Truth’ effort set for Joliet area July 12

Published: Friday, June 28, 2013 9:11 a.m. CDT

The eager face of a beautiful baby is a reminder of the joy that every new life brings.

Every child deserves the chance to be born and to be loved. Yet over 1.2 million unborn babies are aborted each year in our country.

On Friday, July 12, pro-life advocates will be holding signs at three sites in the Joliet area to increase awareness of the tragedy of abortion.

Volunteers can join them:

• From 9 to 10:30 a.m. in Joliet, at Jefferson Street and Larkin Avenue • From 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Shorewood, at Illinois 59 and Black Road. • From 3 to 4:30 p.m. in Plainfield, at Illinois 59 and Caton Farm Road.

The Knights of Columbus, Good Shepherd Council # 5573 and Reverence for Life will have a luncheon for sign holders from 1:30 to 2:30 at St. Mary Immaculate Parish, in the Faith Sharing Room at 15629 S. Illinois 59, Plainfield.

For more information please call Ted Castro Sr. at (815) 439-0541.
