We had a dozen people attend our November Torchbearers event! Planned Parenthood was closed for a whole week this month! We took two vans and a total of twenty-one people to the National Men’s March to End Abortion in Baltimore, MD during the fall USCCB meeting.

I was invited to do a pro-life apologetics training for the Toledo Diocese Catholic Charity’s Academy for Life kick-off.
