Helpers of God’s Precious Children

April 6, 2019 @ 6:45 am - 3:30 pm


A reminder that our next Helper’s prayer gathering will be on Saturday
April 6, 2019, if you need a ride, please call me at 812-841-0060. Be
prepared for a windy spring day because sometimes in April and May
we can experience a windy cool day and it is best to wear layers of
clothing and to peel a layer off it you are too warm.  Bloomington is in
the middle of a 40 Days for Life campaign and we adjust our plans to
help provide much needed coverage.  The following is the schedule for April:

40 Days for Life – Spring 2019

The spring 40 Days for Life is during the Lenten season.  The actual dates are
March 6 through April 14.  This means we will be asked to cover the Saturday
April 6, 2019 hours from 9:00 am UNTIL 2:00 pm.  We can use all the help we
can get. So please consider to sign up for an hour at


As we experienced over the last ten years many Helpers relocate or have a
change in their schedule that does not allow them to attend every first Saturday.
Many Helpers that have experienced this have mentioned to me they like to
come even if it once a year.  May 4, 2019 would be a good Saturday for us to
mark on the calendar and meet up for Helpers in Bloomington.  There is another
option and that is wherever duty calls you to be on the first Saturday of the month,
you can pray along with us.

Happy 10th Birthday Helpers

Happy Birthday to us, Happy Birthday to us.  Helpers of Terre Haute started in March
of 2009.  After seven years and five months we had to move to Bloomington due to the
closure of Planned Parenthood in Terre Haute.  For two years and six months we have
traveled to Bloomington. Even though our attendance has declined, we go in the same
spirt as Mary mother of Jesus, and the beloved disciple John went to the first Calvary.
Thank-you for all your support.

Someone recently asked how this ministry lasted so long. In fact, the statement was
a bit more lacking in respect.  I think it is a manner of simplicity.  We do not have a budget;
therefore, we do not have a Board of Directors.  We do not have long meetings that assign
tasks that do not get attention.  This eliminates egos and such.  We merely go to the modern
day Calvary in the same spirit as Mary and John went to the first Calvary.

Thank you all for your prayers and support.

Spread your love for life,

Tom of the Holy Family
Missionary Servants of the Gospel of Life

The Helpers of God’s Precious Infants are a group of people committed to
maintaining a loving and prayerful presence outside of the abortion mills,
where God’s children are put to death. We unite ourselves with these victims
in solidarity with their pain, as they are put to death at this modern day Calvary.
We pray in reparation for the injustice being performed on their tiny bodies.

Just as Mary and John lovingly stood and prayed beneath Jesus’ Cross as he died,
we wish to remain with these children in the hour that they are crucified.   Most of
all, we love the unborn children who will be brought there that day. These children
have been rejected by their parents, and are doomed to die. The only human love
they may ever encounter in their short lives may be from those of us standing
outside.  www.helpersny.org
