URGENT: Your help is needed in Springfield

Leave a comment

HB 40 is heating up — it could be called for a vote any day!  If passed, the bill will allow for public funding of abortions, coverage for abortions in state health plans, funding of organizations that perform abortions (like Planned Parenthood), among other things.  We must make our voices heard!

There is an urgent need to meet with legislators in Springfield to personally ask them to “Vote NO” on HB 40. The Catholic Conference of Illinois will provide a training session prior to meeting with our legislatures. Please join us and others from throughout the Diocese of Rockford on Wednesday, March 29, 2017.

Your help is needed! Departure locations to Springfield and times will be determined based on participation. Please register early so that we can arrange transportation for everyone who would like to attend. Visit for more details and to sign up online. Questions? Contact the Life & Family Evangelization Office at or (815) 399-4300.

We are two Catholic Churches close to downtown Freeport, IL. Our communities are over 150 years old and have been dedicated to our lord Jesus Christ since our inception. We believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was concieved by the Holy Spirit, born of ythe Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
