Sidewalk Counselor Training scheduled for Wednesday, September 12, 2012 in time for 40 Days for Life
We have just gotten our sidewalk counseling trainers in place for a Wednesday evening training on September 12, 2012, from 6:30 to 8:30pm, at the Bishop O'Connor Center located at 702 S. High Point Road on Madison's west side. The fee will be $10.00 and scholarships are available. Our seasoned sidewalk counselors who will assist in the training will be the Servants of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Jen Dunnett and Will Goodman. Mary Mead of Rachel's Vineyard in Madison will share post-abortion information that is essential information for sidewalk counselors. Steve and Laura Karlen will also provide additional insight.
Please mark your calendars now! To register call Bette Weisshaar at 608-358-5963 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, Sept. 10th. This is the perfect time for training with 40 Days for Life beginning only 2 weeks later and the Women's Care Center directly across the street, an exciting new feature in the 40 Days for Life campaign. This is an opportunity you don't want to miss!
