WORLDWIDE MOVEMENT TO PROTECT MOTHERS AND CHILDREN
Through prayer and fasting, peaceful vigils and community outreach, 40 Days for Life has inspired 750,000 volunteers to help end the injustice of abortion in their local communities.
With God’s help, over the last 10 years, in 741 cities across 47 nations, 13,998 babies have been saved, 170 abortion workers have converted and 90 abortion centers have closed – so far!
The next campaign begins Ash Wednesday, February 14 and ends Palm Sunday, March 25. To be successful, we need YOU to commit to prayer times at the very place where innocent lives are ended – Planned Parenthood, 2314 Auburn Avenue in Cincinnati, any hour between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. daily.
Kickoff Rally – Sunday, February 11, at 3:00 p.m. in front of Planned Parenthood. All are welcome. To learn more, contact Mary Clark at 513-791-4039/cincy40days@fuse.net and visit www.40daysforlife.com/cincinnati.

FAMILY PROMISE RETURNING TO NORTHERN KY – A group of dedicated people have begun the process of restarting Family Promise of Northern Kentucky (FPNKY). There is a tremendous need for Family Promise because many Northern Kentucky families have no regular place to call home. FPNKY is one of the only social service organizations in Northern Kentucky that keeps entire families together. Restarting FPNKY will provide families with training and support to better their life, for example job training, a professional case worker and something as simple as a mailing address. The goal is to help these families obtain the life skills that make a stable home life possible. As you would expect, monetary donations are needed for startup costs, day center renovations and a van or small bus. These costs are based on a no-frills budget; assumed volunteer support and in-kind donations. Your contribution is tax deductible. Hosea House has graciously agreed to act as the temporary fiscal agent until a 501(c) (3) tax exempt status for FPNKY can be obtained. Donations can be sent to: Family Promise of Northern Kentucky, P.O. Box 721763, Newport, KY 41072. Make checks payable to Hosea House and note that it is a gift for Family Promise of NKY. For more information or to volunteer, please contact us at NKYfamilypromise@gmail.com.
