February saw PLW active throughout the state: Green Bay, Milwaukee and St. Nazianz:

Green Bay

February 10 - February 11, 2018: Hosted by The St. Gianna Molla Guild of Northeast Wisconsin, Fr. Edward Looney led attendees in a day of inspiring Marian reflections on Saturday Feb 10. The next day, hundreds of faithful gathered at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral for the Jubilee Mass with Bishop David Ricken for Persons with Disabilities, the Sick, & Caregivers followed by a reception. Over fifty people stayed to hear a talk on navigating end of life questions with a Catholic perspective, presented by Fr. Tad Pacholczyk. Pro-Life Wisconsin's Program Director, Therese Aloia, attended the Retreat Day and White Mass and staffed the PLW booth. It was a popular place for faithful to stop by and pickup PLW pins and pens, holy cards, literature and Choose Life license plate application forms, to name a few. Dozens of PLW's Protective Power of Attorney Health Care packets were provided to interested faithful. Didn't get one? Click here to download or email Therese.A@ProLifeWI.org for your free copy.



February 12, 2018: On a cold and snowy winter night, 40 faithful pro-lifers gathered outside AMS for the Candlelight Vigil to kickoff the 40 Days for Life in Milwaukee. Joined by Most Reverend Jeffrey R. Haines. Auxiliary Bishop of Milwaukee, the Very Rev. Timothy L. Kitzke, V.G., leaders of 40 Days for Life-Milwaukee, and Pro-Life Wisconsin staff and board members, the faithful prayed earnestly, with candle in hand, for the end of abortion, healing for those harmed by abortion and for a restoration of the culture of life. The thirty minute vigil ended with everyone signing hymns of praise which echoed down the streets of Milwaukee above the noise of oncoming traffic.


St. Nazianz

February 16, 2018: Pro-Life Wisconsin attended to their souls by going on a day-long retreat to
"put out into the deep" (Luke 5:1-11) to continue encountering Our Lord in this Lenten season to better serve others in their pro-life work. The staff and board members of Pro-Life Wisconsin journeyed to Holy Resurrection Monastery, located in St. Nazianz, WI. The day was filled with quiet contemplation, sacred liturgy, and reflections on encountering the mystical and the virtue of hope. Hospitality is a hallmark of the monks and they graciously provided their delicious coffee during breaks and a hearty home-cooked meal shared in community with the monks. The day concluded with a blessing from Abbot Nicholas and Pro-Life Wisconsin left refreshed to continue spreading a Love. For Life.
