Prayer Warriors Needed.....

Helpers of God's Precious Infants is always looking for prayer warriors - people who pray for the success of sidewalk counselors and for those considering abortion, their boyfriends, their relatives, those coercing the young ladies, the doctors, etc.

History has proven that prayer and peaceful counseling - not confrontation - is the key to turning people on this issue. It means setting aside anger and leaving it all in the hands of God, and in the Blessed Mother.

From the Chicago Chapter of the Helpers of God's Precious Infants on Prayer Warriors.

Helpers prayer warriors gather at abortion facilities at any time abortions are being performed. They provide crucial spiritual and moral support for the sidewalk counselors, and intercede on behalf of abortion-bound parents, using the Helpers Prayer Book of the Precious Blood of Jesus. Even when sidewalk counselors are not present, prayer warriors are vital. Many an abortion-bound mother has confessed she turned away from abortion, "Because I saw people at the abortion clinic who were praying for me."

Saturday, June 30th - Helpers Prayer Vigil

This coming Saturday marks the day of yet another prayer vigil arranged by the Helpers of God's Precious Infants. This particular vigil will depart from the usual place of prayer - outside of two clinics in Detroit off of 8 Mile Rd - to a clinic on the west side.
St. Scholastica is actually off the service drive of the Southfield Freeway and on the corner of Outer Drive. Here is a google map. If you hit hybrid and zoom in, you will see a satellite view of the area, plus an overlay of street names.

Bishop Daniel Flores will be leading this time.

Fr. Tom Euteneuer of HLI - A 1 Day Retreat in Detroit

Fr. Tom Euteneuer, Dan Goodnow (President of HGPI-Mich - backrow and two to the right of Fr. Tom), and members of the HGPI-Mich Advisory Board

Fr. Tom Euteneuer, the President of Human Life International who began his pro-life work with the Helpers of God's Precious Infants, came to Detroit on Memorial Day weekend to give a one-day retreat to the local Helpers.

The day began at 1:00 with a series of talks that would end around 7:00pm and included Mass at Assumption Grotto at 4:00pm Saturday.

The retreat itself focused on the subject contained in an upcoming book by Fr. Euteneuer, which he discusses in a blogpost made the same weekend in his Spirit & Life blog. That blogpost contains an excerpt from a Chapter entitled, "The Devil, His Minions, and His Activities"

Here are a few photos of the day.

Fr. Euteneuer then spoke at all the Masses at Assumption Grotto the following Sunday, and then celebrated the noon Novus Ordo, which is in the vernacular. At Assumption Grotto, the wall altar is used. The noon Mass was in English, as is typical most Sundays. He followed up with Benediction, which is also a weekly occurrence. You can see those photos in this blogpost at the Te Deum Laudamus blog.
