"Guiding Star at the Shores" Project

The Knights of Columbus are pleased to extend their support towards a new Pro-Life initiative coming to our area called, “Guiding Star at the Shores.”

The goal of this project is to establish a new local Women’s Health Facility dedicated to creating a new standard in women’s healthcare helping women to understand, embrace and love their natural bodies. This new “Guiding Star Center” will offer services in four core women’s health areas:

  • Natural Fertility and Family Planning
  • Pregnancy and Childbirth
  • Breastfeeding and Postpartum
  • Family Life

The new Center will be the 9th facility in the U.S. and is set to be located on Jimmie Leeds Road, next to the local abortion clinic in Galloway Township.  The plan is to lease space in an existing building with the intention to purchase the entire building that will facilitate the full needs and health care for women including Childbirth and beyond. As these “Centers” grow throughout the Country, this just could be the “Tipping Point” needed to turn the culture of our nation back to “LIFE”! 

In the future, your time and financial support will be needed. Please watch for additional information in future Church Bulletins. Right now, your prayers are needed to ask the Holy Spirit to help this new pro-life initiative flourish.
