If you bought a rose outside your church on Mother’s Day, there is a new mother, or soon-to-be new mother out there who thanks you. Your donation, along with hundreds of others, resulted in $36,239 being donated to Obria Medical Clinics of Southern California, as well as many other pro-life organizations that depend on your support.
In its e-newsletter, Obria thanked the following parishes for their donations:
Christ our Savior
Holy Family, Seal Beach
Our Lady of Mount Carmel
Our Lady of Guadalupe Delhi
Our Lady of Guadalupe Santa Ana
Our Lady Queen of Angels
San Antonio de Padua
San Francisco Solano
Santiago de Compostela
St. John Vianney
St. Thomas More
In the San Antonio de Padua Respect Life Ministry update, Michael Cushing reported that the parish sent $1,200 in proceeds from its Mother’s Day rose sale to Obria.
In addition to supporting Obria, the parish raised more than $20,000 through its Respect Life Ministry that supported Mary’s Path, the Santa Ana Life Center and Pennies From Heaven. Diapers, clothing and baby supplies were also donated to these organizations.
