Recent news for Pickerington:
On Monday June 3rd, the "Complete Healthcare for Women" actually opened for business, it is a sad day for Pickerington, but I also see some good news that it's intended target of the school kids has been disrupted due to summer vacation...no school buses passing by...
On Monday January 21st, Complete Healthcare for Women opened at 670 Hill Road North, yes that is in our backyard and yes it is run by the same group the runs the abortion mill on Cleveland Avenue (where we do our 40 days for life protest). Please pray and support the efforts of our Right to Life group and the community.
At a meeting held at Seton (January 22nd the community came together to support the removal of this business from our area and from Columbus. We will be using prayer, education and peaceful actions to call this to the attention of the community at large (most of which have no idea that this business moved in).
We were also called out by name (KofC) to be an instrument of the community...
Calling All Knights!
We need men to pray outside the abortion mill on Hill Rd North on Mondays and Tuesdays from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.
Please take one hour to come and pray to stop this travesty from staying in our community only one block from Seton.

Respect Life: March for Life Student Comments
Another great March for Life bus trip was completed on January 24-25. By any measure, this was the most successful trip ever! We had 58 people on our trip - which is remarkable when you consider that the bus only holds 56! Because we had so many, four of our travelers volunteered to ride in a minivan following the bus. In addition, we had a family of four from Seton stay with us at the hotel even though they drove themselves to DC.
The best news is that we had 30 SPY kids and chaperones (a new record!) and 12 kids and chaperones from Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Buckeye Lake. With that many kids aboard, we got plenty of comments from the students, and they were great. Here are some of them - I will put the rest in next month’s newsletter:
This was my second time going on the March. I think that it's amazing, the amount of people that all come together for one common goal. I think the part that really hit me was seeing the women that had had abortions carrying signs that said “I regret having an abortion”. My favorite part was the Mass at the Basilica. It was a really fun life-changing trip.
This was my first trip for the March for Life. It was an incredible and moving experience. I loved the chants during the March. Especially, “Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Roe v. Wade has got to go!” I think it’s amazing how so many people rallied around one cause.
This trip more than anything showed me unity. It showed me unity with all Catholics when Catholics from all over the country gathered in the Basilica, unity with other pro-life supporters at the March for life, and unity with my own community through the entire trip. So blessed to have such a moving experience!
This trip means more and more every year. Believing in something and being true to yourself is one thing, however joining thousands who believe the same thing is eye-opening and simply beautiful. Every moment I felt one with the person on my left or on my right. I love this trip every year and come every chance I get to defend my beliefs.
The march was amazing. One speech or phrase that really made me understand is "Divided we fall, united we stand tall". This has a really big meaning. The meaning of this is basically the March for Life. We all marched together and the signs that were there were amazing. This was life-changing.
The fact that so many people can be this adamant and come together about an issue that they think needs to be resolved, frankly, is inspiring.
I cannot even organize my thoughts right now. The fact that there are nearly 100 abortions for every adoption, the fact that one third of my generation was murdered in the womb, the fact that politicians cannot even correctly categorize abortion as a human rights issue - it is terrifying. This March though, it reminded me that even though we have to fight for life, Christ has already won the war.
I can't say how happy I am that I made the choice to come on this trip. I had never thought about abortion before this March all that much. But after the March and this whole trip, it is so obvious how wrong abortion is. Gosh, it's just so heartbreaking that this type of murder is legal. I am ready to fight for pro-life. I'm ready to do whatever I can for this cause. I'll pray my rear off for these innocent babies. Love, much love.
The thing that impressed me the most was probably seeing the thousands of people behind us at the March. I thought that was really cool. The Basilica was beautiful. It was gorgeous. I am really looking forward to next year.
At school, it is sometimes hard to keep a pro-life opinion, for it is like you are alone in your belief. Coming to the March for Life, however, allows you a chance to see that you are not alone, that hundreds of thousands of people share this core belief. That fact alone helps to reaffirm this belief, as well as give hope that we can make a difference.
The March was everything I thought it would be. I had never seen so many people join together and actually agreeing on something and not all fighting. It was so much fun!
The March has reminded me of how massive the Catholic faith is and that if we all truly believe in something and came together as one, anything is possible and change can come.
