Pro-Life Movie
"October Baby" - Pro-Life Movie - St. Denis Parish Center (Free Admission) On Saturday, April 26th at 7:30 pm, the local "40 Days for Life" campaign and the St. Denis Respect Life Committee will be presenting the movie "October Baby" at the St. Denis Parish Center. This is a compelling 90-minute film that tells the story of Hannah, a college freshman who discovers she is the adopted survivor of a failed abortion. She is stunned by this news and embarks on a road trip across the country to discover the circumstances surrounding her birth. Before the film, a brief "40 Days for Life" presentation will be conducted by the Dutchess County Campaign Coordinator Maureen Haege (845-853-6529). She will provide an update on the 2014 spring campaign and discuss ways we can get involved with the fall campaign.

We will be selling raffle tickets for various gift baskets and tickets for a 50-50 drawing. We will also be raffling off an 18.5" Weber Grill. The winners will be drawn at the Breakfast, and winners need not be present to win. For more information or to buy tickets, please call the school at 845-227-5232. Hope to see you there!
