Parish and Diocesan Pro-Life Opportunities
Working to build a culture of life requires all of us to give in some way of our time, talent and treasure. Even a small amount can go a long way!

At Blessed Sacrament Parish, the Respect Life group welcomes anyone interested to join their monthly meetings on the first Saturday of every month at 9:30 a.m. in the parish meeting room. You may contact the parish office for more details, 703-998-6100, or by following this link to their email address.

The Respect Life group prays a Rosary for Life each Saturday at 9:00 a.m. in the daily chapel following the 8:30 a.m. Mass. On the second Saturday of each month, the group meets at approximately 9:15 a.m. for prayer outside the abortion clinic at 2839 Duke Street, Alexandria, VA, near Bishop Ireton High School.

Through the Diocese of Arlington, many opportunities are available to assist in pro-life efforts. Bishop Paul Loverde leads a Saturday morning Mass and prayer each month as a part of the diocese's pro-life efforts. A schedule of Respect Life Masses is available online, and all are welcome!

Pregnancy assistance is available through the diocese, as well, through Gabriel Project Arlington, and free volunteer training will be provided on Saturday, February 9, from 10am - 12:30pm at Holy Trinity Church, Our Lady's Hall, 8213 Linton Hall Rd., Gainesville, VA 20155. Learn how to assist expectant mothers in your parish.

Help after abortion is available through the diocese's Project Rachel program. Many resources are available online, as well as a confidential toll free help line at 1-888-456-HOPE.

Many Post Abortion Retreats are also available through the diocese. These include days of prayer and healing, as well as weekend retreats. For more information, contact 1-888-456-HOPE or at this email address.
