Walk for Life

PLM’s annual Walk for Life is quickly approaching. Scheduled for Saturday, April 28, it’s time to mark this date on your calendar, go on line and register at prolifemississippi.org, and start collecting sponsors to underwrite your walk. Prizes will be awarded to the team and individual raising the most in pledges. Walk for Life t-shirts will be given to each person who raises $25. The walk begins at St. Richard Catholic Church at 1242 Lynnwood Drive, Jackson, proceeds to the last abortion clinic in Mississippi (2miles) where a brief prayer service is held, and returns to the church where a yummy brunch prepared by the Knights of Columbus awaits you. See you there!

Brunch

Don’t forget the Billboards!

PLM’s Billboard Campaign is still going on right here in Jackson, but we need your help. Our cost is $250 a month to keep one billboard up in the Jackson area.

We know these billboards change hearts and minds of people in an unplanned pregnancy. The billboards might catch the eye of a young girl who might be pregnant or a friend of someone who needs help. We never know how God works through us and the small things we do.

If 50 people will send $5 a month for the billboards it will cover the cost. Please send Pro-Life Mississippi $5, $10 or $15. a month. When you setup your payment be sure to let us know it is for billboards.

The easiest way to send your support for the billboard campaign is the following:

  • Have a recurring payment setup from your checking account
  • Have a recurring payment setup with your credit card

Thank you.

Billboard Chairman
