|As the new president of Grand Strand Citizens for Life. I am both humbled and honored to be given the opportunity to lead our endeavors in the Pro Life arena here in South Carolina.
After over 20 years of vacationing in the area, my husband and I moved here from central New Jersey in March of 2012. In New Jersey, I was actively involved in the Pro Life Movement for 34 years. I served as Chairman of our church's Pro Life Committee activities for 25+ years and was the Diocesan Representative for our parish.
Functionally, my responsibilities included the coordination of annual bus trips to Washington D.C. and Trenton, the state capitol, in support of the March for Life and Rally for Life respectively. Additionally, I led the Respect Life Chain in October, participated in Conferences for both the Diocese and State Right to Life Organizations, and ran numerous fund raisers to support local pregnancy centers. Politically, I worked on behalf of Respect Life candidates for congress.
In 2011, I was one of two recipients of the Diocese of Metuchen's Pro Vita (Pro Life) Award. The award was presented by the Bishop of Metuchen in recognition for my outstanding leadership and steadfast commitment to promoting the sanctity of human life, for my work as parish pro life representative, and for my efforts in helping women and families facing unplanned pregnancies and poverty to choose life. Upon my arrival in South Carolina, I joined the already fully functional Respect Committee at St. Michael's Catholic Church in Garden City. Currently, I serve as their Chairperson.
Together with God's help and your support, I plan to lead us in our commitment to bring the Pro Life message to as many people as possible. Hopefully, our endeavors will save the lives of the many unborn children as well as elderly who need us to speak for them.|
