October's Featured Pro Life Organization
"And Then There Were None (ATTWN) is a registered nonprofit organization that exists to help abortion clinic workers leave the abortion industry. ATTWN is pro-life without exceptions. While we believe in wholeheartedly support of all peaceful pro-life efforts, ATTWN seeks to end abortion from the inside out.”  

Abby Johnson (Portrayed in the movie "Unplanned") founded the anti-abortion group And Then There Were None after leaving her job running a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas in 2009. Click here to watch Abby in an inspiring video or click here for the full website.
Transfiguration Schedules Teen DASH Event!

Respect for Life Makes Prayer their First Tool.
The Transfiguration Life Ministry is embarking on a program making prayer a priority. Prayer is recognized as the most effective method for changing hearts when it comes to abortion. In the upcoming months various prayer reminders will be provided to parishioners, encouraging daily prayer.
