The Pro-Life Union of Delaware County and the St. Pius X Respect Life Committee co-hosted the annual Our Lady of Guadalupe dinner on Dec. 12. Approximately 200 people attended the event which was held at the Mater Dei Knights of Columbus Hall in Newtown Square.
Presenters included Kevin Burke from Rachel’s Vineyard Ministries, Father David Waters, parochial vicar at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in Morton, and Michael McMonagle, president of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Coalition.
Generation Life’s Caitlin D’Adamo and Legacy of Life’s Maria Joseph also spoke about their ministries. Former state representative Steve Friend presented the Defender of Life Award to McMonagle for his nearly four decades of selfless dedication to advancing the cause of life. Chris and Anita Galligan, members of St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Springfield, also received the Defender of Life Award.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
