There are few things more important in this current day and age than the fight to end abortion. We know that the most important thing we need to do is pray. As St. Pio said “Prayer is the best weapon we have; it is the key to God's heart. You must speak to Jesus not only with your lips, but with your heart.” Though powerful, praying is our only means of trying to change the hearts of others, and opening their eyes to the horror of abortion. There are many actions we can take, especially when we band together and create Pro-Life Groups or Ministries within our Catholic Parishes or communities. However, one battle in this fight against abortion is that most of the activities beyond prayer require money to be effective.
Few parishes allocate any of the already tight annual budget to their Pro-Life Groups, and asking the pastor for funds for a Pro-Life campaign can be difficult or uncomfortable. The unfortunate result is that either the members of the group have to use their own money, or abandon the planned campaign all together. Giving from personal resources is a very good thing, but if the desired Pro-Life campaign is significant in size (which we think is needed in this current cultural climate) then the members might not be able to pool together thousands of dollars.
Here are a few things that extra funds could do for your Pro-Life Ministry:
Allow you to display a Pro-Life Billboard in your area
Cover (or at least supplement) the cost of transportation and lodging for the March for Life in Washington, DC
Bring a well-known Pro-Life speaker to witness to your Parish or Diocese such as Abby Johnson, Lila Rose or any of the other wonderful Catholic Speakers mentioned here
Provide the ability to purchase quality resources for your Pro-Life Group (this could include books, high quality literature to display at your parish, or an audio or video series)
The ability to improve your hospitality ( provide dinner, snacks or free-childcare) for your Pro-Life meetings to encourage more active participation within your Catholic community.
So you may be thinking: Ok, so what is the best way of fundraising for my Pro-Life Group?
