Meet Lisa Marianacci & Her Family

  

 

Lisa Marianacci is a devoted wife and mother of three (so far), witnessing to the sanctity of human life through her vocation.  She spent six years working as a crisis pregnancy counselor at two local clinics. After the birth of her third child, her schedule made counseling unsustainable. Through openness to hearing the Lord's calling in this season of her life, she has been pleasantly surprised with how much opportunity she has found to share the pro-life message. From new friends, to acquaintances, to her children, to casual encounters at the super market, she has come to realize that the opportunity to support and advocate for the sanctity of human life is all around us. Lisa says that her current inspiration for her work in the pro-life movement follows the example of Saint Teresa of Calcutta, "I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples."

Meet Sara Yarrington & Her Children


After working many years as an engineer, Sara Yarrington was able to stop working to be a Stay At Home Mom.  She found much more fulfillment doing children's ministry, and babysitting for a women's bible study. Once she had her third child, and joined the bible study herself, she realized how much she didn't know about God. She always knew she was pro-life, but did not know how passionately she wanted to be involved until having her 4th child and recovering from severe post-partum depression.  Her 5th child is coming next April. Sara is a parishioner of Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church.

 

 Why a "Jericho March"? 

In the first chapter of Joshua, God commands Joshua to cross the Jordan and take possession of the promised land, saying He would never leave or forsake the Israelites and for them to be "strong and courageous" in conquering the land. When they came to Jericho, a highly fortified city, God promised to deliver the city to the Israelites. They were commanded to march around the city once a day for 6 days without any war cries. On the 7th day they marched around the city 7 times and on the 7th lap they all shouted at the trumpet call as God had instructed, and the walls of the city collapsed. They were able to easily take the city.
We will march around Planned Parenthood once for 6 Sundays and then walk 7 laps on the 7th Sunday. We pray for God to break down the spiritual walls in people's hearts in Planned Parenthood and for the evil of abortion to collapse. Like the Israelites we must be strong and courageous as God calls us to fight His battle against abortion.

Included among our speakers is Sister Gail Lancaster with the Servants of God's Love Community, who recently attended the Exorcism of the former Planned Parenthood Resource Center in Ypsilanti, which Family Life Services recently acquired. FLS will be redeeming the building and expanding their services to meet the mounting needs of woman and children in our community. Sister Gail will share her experience of the Exorcism and how essential intercession is in the spiritual battle that is taking place in our age.

Everyone is welcome.

Meet Sister Gail Lancaster

Sister Gail Lancaster is a member of the Servants of God's Love, a religious community of the Lansing Diocese in the Ann Arbor area.  Sister Gail has taught at Huron Valley Catholic School for the past thirty years and left her position there this year, so that she could become involved in Pro-Life work.  Presently she serves at Family Life Services on Wednesday afternoons and goes to Detroit on Friday mornings to stand, pray, and speak with people in front of Summit Clinic, an abortion facility, with Guadalupe Workers.  She generally comes to this Planned Parenthood location several times a week to pray after she has exercised.  Sister Gail still helps out here and there at Huron Valley Catholic School and teaches 5th Grade Catechesis for the homeschoolers at Christ The King Parish.

Meet Mary Lockwood

Mary Lockwood is a post-abortive woman who has had multiple abortions, one of which involved her husband, John. She speaks out and gives her testimony by sharing what God has done for her through His mercy & forgiveness.  The main reason for sharing her story is with the hope of possibly helping other women and men with the pain of abortion and to possibly prevent the years of suffering she has experienced.  Mary has a B.S. degree from Madonna University in Business Management and an MSA from Central Michigan in Human Resource Administration.  She is the chair of the Life Issues committee at Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church, serves on the Minority Outreach Advisory committee, as well as the Black History Month committee, through Right to Life of Michigan.  Both Mary and her husband are on the Rachel's Vineyard retreat team which is a post abortive ministry.  Her website is www.marylockwood.net.
