Wonderful news! The pilgrimage icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa will be visiting Mayo Clinic-Franciscan Healthcare on this Sunday, June 1, at approximately 3:00 p.m.!

The icon is coming to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse this weekend as part of a world tour in support of life and family. It is part of a movement to promote a culture of life.

Tour organizers have agreed to bring the icon to Franciscan Healthcare, where it is hoped to carry the icon in procession around the hospital grounds and seek the powerful intercession of Our Lady for a victory in this movement to have our Catholic hospital sever all ties with abortionists.

Please join if you can at the hospital in prayer and procession on Sunday!

Our Lady of Czestochowa, pray for us!

Join us in Protest on May 14th – While abortionist is at Mayo in La Crosse

On Wednesday, May 14th, Dr. Carl Rose, the abortionist at the center of this controversy, will be coming to Mayo Clinic-Franciscan Healthcare in La Crosse to meet with pregnant women. We want the pregnant women who are meeting with Dr. Rose to know that he is an abortionist, so that he does not mislead them into harming their babies. We also want to send a strong message to Dr. Rose, the administration of Franciscan Healthcare and the FSPA Sisters that it is unacceptable to have an abortionist working at our Catholic hospital and it must stop now.

Supporters of this cause will be holding up signs from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on May 14th, and we hope to have a crowd of at least 150 people for a strong stand from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Supporters from the Twin Cities to Rockford, Illinois, have indicated that they will join the picketers on May 14th. Please join us to take a stand on behalf of mothers and babies. Please spread the word and encourage new people to join us.

And please pray for the success of this growing movement. With the grace of God, we can bring these shameful practices to an end.

Thank you and God bless you!
