Spiritual Adoption

Members of St Stephen, Martyr parish and Guests are asked to consider Spiritually adopting an unborn baby, and naming him or her.  On March 25th to December 25th, we individually start to pray the prayer given to us by Bishop Sheen.

Bishop Sheen’s Prayer

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much.
I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby
that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.

This prayer can be started anytime.  People may join in after March 25th.  It should be prayed daily, but do not worry about the baby being aborted if you should miss some days.  Try to make them up if possible.

This year we are praying for 52 babies.

Please consider joining us and saving babies lives.

Spiritual Adoption Poster resizedSpiritually Adopting an Unborn Baby

In the Narthex there is a table with the poster, and clipboard and information you will need.

Please sign your name on the clipboard along with the name of the baby you are spiritually adopting.

Take a heart blue for boy, pink for girl. Write the baby’s name of the heart, and put the heart on the poster.

Take a Holy Card.  Write the name of the baby on the Holy Card, and take card home.

The poster contains the monthly development of the baby.

Thank you for joining us in as we pray for the unborn babies.
