On January 18th – 19th 2014, there will be a second collection to support the work of Opportunities for Life, a 24/7 hotline for men and woman facing an untimely pregnancy. Please be generous in your support of this ministry. For information about OFL, please call (888) 496-3638.
A woman with four children called the Opportunities for Life hotline. Her youngest child is one and she is pregnant. She told the volunteer that she could not go through another pregnancy with everyone talking about how “she was pregnant again”.
The volunteer told her that she knew it was hard and that she was sure that the caller was a good mom. She encouraged her to make a decision that she could be glad about in ten years. The caller calmed down and asked about open adoption. Our volunteer gave her the number for Catholic Charities and encour-aged her to call. She was thankful for the opportunity to talk to the volunteer and said she would call Catholic Charities for more information.
Opportunities for Life Volunteers Needed
Opportunities for Life needs YOU. A girl facing a diffi-cult decision regarding the life of her unborn baby needs YOU. A baby whose mom is thinking about abortion needs YOU. YOU can help her AND her baby.
Opportunities for Life, is the Kentucky Catholic Church’s ministry to abortion-vulnerable women and men. Volunteers offer hope and re-sources to callers who find the courage to seek our help. Helpline volunteers answer the helpline from their homes at times that are convenient for them. A training is scheduled at the Catholic Center on Saturday, March 8 from 9:00am to 4:00pm.
