Evening Attire

The Pregnancy Careline Center of Port Charlotte is celebrating our 5th Annual Gala to financially support its loving work in Charlotte County. The collective efforts of the community through the Careline have resulted in many babies saved and young families mentored.

At this fundraising event themed: “Defend, Rescue, Deliver” we will have the opportunity to look back in thankfulness and awe at how the Lord has grown and led this ministry. With these fast-paced times and ever-changing technological advances, The Pregnancy Careline Center has striven to continue moving forward, while still staying true to God's word and the sanctity of all human life.

Please make plans now to join us at this special event, complete with our wonderful speaker, Gianna Jessen and your choice of 3 delicious meals, all overlooking the beautiful Peace River!

Gianna Jessen travels the world, speaking the truth in love and graciousness. She tells the story of how she survived a saline abortion and was raised by an adoptive family. She will teach us how she engages the conversations that must be had to change our culture and make abortion unthinkable. Come, celebrate life and make loving support for crisis pregnancies available to every person who comes in stunned, scared and unprepared to let nature take its course at the Pregnancy Careline Center.

Baby bag drive for pregnancy careline

On March 16 and 17th we will have our membership drive combined with the handing out of Baby Bags. There are 4 entrances/exits from the church plus 1 from the Parish Center. Since everyone will be attending a Mass, assuming they are still in Florida, it should be a snap to get all the entrances covered. However, rather than leave it to chance and last minute planning could you please pick a Mass time and help out? You can email me at or call me at 505-688-0781 with the best time for you.

HERE for the Mass Sign-Up Sheet.

The only requirement is to show up about 15-30 minutes before Mass and hand out Baby Bags and then after Mass hand out Form 100 membership applications. On March 18th we will have have the new members pizza party.

Hopefully we can raise enough money to increase last years donation of $1800 to Pregnancy Careline and drum up at least 6 new members.

Unplanned is a 2019 American film written and directed by Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon, based on the autobiographical book of the same name by Abby Johnson. The film stars Ashley Bratcher, Brooks Ryan, Robia Scott, Jared Lotz, and Emma Elle Roberts, and is scheduled for release on March 29, 2019. The working title of the film was Redeemed, and details of the film's subject were kept from the public in order to minimize protests against the subject matter.  Abby Johnson is one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the United States. She has worked at a clinic in Texas for eight years, and has become a community outreach director and media spokeswoman for the organization. One day she is asked to assist in an ultrasound-guided abortion at thirteen weeks gestation. After what she witnesses, she resigns, and becomes a pro-life activist.

A message from Shawn Carney, President of 40 Days for Life:

As abortion advocates lobby for late-term abortion and infanticide, the highly anticipated trailer for Unplanned was just released... ...and it's already been viewed over a MILLION times on Facebook!  Facebook has not been kind to pro-lifers, but you can send a message to Facebook by sharing the trailer to help it get a million more views! If you don't have Facebook, that's ok.                                                            You can view the trailer by clicking HERE

Unplanned will be the definitive movie on abortion and it shows the reality of Planned Parenthood and what every abortion does to an unborn child. But first, people need to see the film as soon as it comes out March 29.  The movie has distribution, and the opening week success is critical. Here are three simple steps you can take to help Unplanned make the biggest impact possible: 

1. Watch and share the trailer on Facebook.
2. Share the YouTube link with all your friends, family members and acquaintances over email, text message, and other social media. 
3. Make plans to see the movie when it opens March 29.
