Candlelight Vigil Speaker Shares Story of Hope
January 22—Around 75 people gathered at the courthouse in downtown Sidney for the annual Pro-Life Candlelight Vigil, which marks the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision of 1973 that legalized abortion in the United States. Beginning in the basement of the courthouse, the vigil commenced with a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. Program Director, Anne Schmiesing, addressed the crowd providing information about programs for post-abortion healing. A guest speaker, Holly Schieffer, then shared her story of a successful adoption and one that fell through due to an abortion; she and her husband also have a 14-month old daughter, conceived after a diagnosis of infertility. A candlelight procession around the courthouse followed the talks. Participants returned to the building for concluding remarks and prayer.
The event is sponsored by Shelby County Right to Life. The Sidney Council of the Knights of Columbus provided refreshments following the event.

Life Chain 2019
More than fifty Shelby County pro-lifers joined thousands of others across the continent in more than 1600 communities in prayerful witness at the annual Life Chain, Sunday, October 6 on the court square. With rain threatening, the program began inside the RTL shop with a prayer led by Father Jarred Kohn of the Petersburg Parishes. Elias Bezy delivered his contest-winning speech, then the group moved outside—no rain!—and displayed pro-life messages for downtown passersby.
Thanks to all who participated in this important witness.
