  • Oct 2: Life Chain @ Bradford County Courthouse 2:00-3:30 pm

    Life Chain offers a peaceful, prayerful public witness. 

    Participants simply hold signs that testify to the truth about abortion, and pray silently for those involved in abortion:  mothers, unborn children, fathers, grandparents, and abortion workers.

                 Signs will be provided – you receive your choice;  they are simple, easy to read, and to the point.  Prayers are suggested on the back of the signs.

    You may stand, or bring a chair.  You are welcome to stay for the entire witness, or as long as you can.  Pray quietly, smile at passers-by.  The more people who come, the longer our chain, the more attention we can bring to this topic the better. There are Life Chains being held this Sunday in all 50 states.  There are more than 80 being held in PA alone.
