Singing at Respect Life Holy Hour

From Jacob:

Hello Gentlemen,

 The Respect Life Holy Hour is coming up on Tuesday January 15th at 6:30 PM. Please let me know (JTemple@saintbridgetchurch.org) if you are able to come sing for this. It’s the same music as in years past and should be very simple. We’ll meet at 6:00 PM in the choir room to warm up and go over things.

 I look forward to hearing from you all!

March for Life/Respect Life Holy Hour/ Novena for Life

From Mike:

All,

 It's not too late to sign-up for the March for Life on Friday, January 18, 2019, in Washington D.C. If you already signed up for 2019 no need to respond. This year we have the St. Edward's bus stopping at the St. Bridget access road by the Middle School for pick-up at 8:30 a.m. as an additional option.  You would need to be at St. Bridget no later than 8:15 a.m. to leave time to check in.  To reserve a seat on that bus, please contact bus captain Tony Hackenburg directly at tjhack@hotmail.com.   
If you would like spots reserved on the bus that departs from the Columbian Center we will follow the routine of past years as far as departure time, etc.( meeting at 7:45 a.m. for an 8 a.m.departure from the Pump Rd. location, travel to the Pastoral Center to meet with the Southside bus, and depart DC at 4-4:30 p.m.).  This year, instead of emailing me, contact Darius, the bus captain for the Columbian Center bus, directly at dmyaz@verizon.net .  Darius, please let us know if you anticipate any substantive changes. 
 When signing up, please provide a mobile phone number. Please pass this information along to friends, parish groups, etc.  Of course, please make sure to check the weather (I'm hopeful it will be balmy) and dress appropriately.  Also, please  bring your own lunch and refreshments.  We plan to arrive back in Richmond by 6:30 p.m., again depending on traffic. Also, a Respect Life Holy Hour has been scheduled for January 15, 2019, @ 6:30 p.m. at St. Bridget Church.   The Holy Hour will be intended as a vigil of sorts for the March for Life and will include Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction.  Please make every effort to join the Church in prayer for the success of our pro-life efforts.
Finally, thanks to Ron Campbell and the Knights of Columbus for spearheading a Novena for Life, running from Jan. 14 through Jan. 22.  Information on how to participate in the Novena is available at https://www.saintbridgetchurch.org/Resources/Announcements/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/183020/Respect-Life-Month-Novena-Adoration-March-in-DC
