Heart-rendering Sculpture titled "Memorial for Unborn Children" by Martin Hudaeck

Martin, who named the work “Memorial for Unborn Children,” said the sculpture also “expresses hope which is given to believers by the One who died on the cross for us, and showed how much He cares about all of us.”  

The memorial is one that invokes forgiveness and healing to post-abortive mothers and fathers.  Click here to read more..

Our Lady of the Visitation's Pro-Life Ministry is dedicated  to protecting all human life, from conception to natural death. We seek to bring the Gospel of Life to our parish through prayer, education and community building events.  We  support various pro-life organizations  such as Undefeated Courage, local pregnancy resource centers, the PA Pro-Life Federation and Rachel's Vineyard.

Our group organizes a yearly bus trip to the March for Life in Washington D.C.  We welcome people of all faiths to join us for the March and to know "there is joy in our fight for life".   We host a Pro-Life Spaghetti Dinner the first Saturday of October to celebrate Respect Life Sunday and raise funds for our group.  Our Group hosts an educational booth representing the PA Pro-Life Federation at the Shippensburg Community Fair.  Recently, we co-sponsored a Human Trafficking Training Seminar and are committed to prayer, education and action for the victims of this crime. 

All parishioners of OLV are welcome to attend our meetings and become a member of the group. Meetings are  held on the second Tuesday of the month in the church social hall at 7 pm.  Children are always welcome.
