"America, defend life, so that you might live in peace and harmony." -- Pope John Paul II in his closing statement from World Youth Day 1993
The Pro-Life Committee of St. Sabina sponsors "White Rose for New Life" program. A vase of white silk roses is placed in the Mother of Perpetual Help Shrine, Our Protectress of the unborn. Each expectant mother of our parish and her unborn child will be represented by a rose marked with the mother's name and due date. The rose will remain before Our Lady throughout the mother's pregnancy as a constant reminder of our parish family to pray for the health and well-being of these and all new mothers and their babies, for a change of heart in those contemplating abortion, for the mercy and forgiveness of Our Lord for all abortions, in thanksgiving for each and every new life given to us by God. Each rose will then be given to the new mother when we welcome her baby into our community at baptism, thanking her for saying "YES" to new life!

Please remember to pray for these expectant mothers and their unborn children.

We invite all expectant mothers of the parish to participate in this program by simply contacting
