National Memorial for the Pre-Born 2014 Photo Album

This was the 20th year of the National Memorial for the Pre-born. Despite a perfectly-timed snow-storm that grounded flights and cancelled bussing company reservations for at least hundreds of attenders and clergy, we had a wonderful turnout and a very special time of prayer, preaching and worship in our second year at DAR Constitution Hall.

Twenty years ago Faith & Action President Rev. Rob Schenck and his twin brother, Father Paul Schenck decided that it wasn’t right that so many pre-born children did not have a proper memorial service, so they held a small gathering. Now, they are just two of many diverse people who gather each year across the street from the White House to celebrate these lives and the gift of life that God has given to each of us.

Interested in attending next year? It’s a great reason to visit Washington, DC and we’d love for you to join. Just give Faith & Action a call at (202) 546-8329 and ask Patty to keep you in the loop. Until then, lets continue to remember the lives of these precious children in our prayers, and thank our Heavenly Father for them. For more on what happened at this year’s event, check out the events section of our website.

Pastor Tony Suarez preaches at the National Memorial for The Pre-born

Normally we just do 3 minute-or-less clips, but when Pastor Tony Suarez from the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference started speaking today at the National Memorial for the Pre-born, we couldn’t bring ourselves to edit him down. Pastor Suarez attended on behalf of NHCLC President Rev. Samuel Rodriguez wrote the statement given in this video (his flight was grounded due to the snow). Lets #pray that we can exchange the Spirit of adoption for the spirit of abortion. #prebornmemorial
