A Beautiful Miracle at the Abortion Clinic Door

Posted by | Mar 10, 2018 | No Comments

Choosing Life & Becoming an R.N.

Today Good Counsel celebrates its 33rd Anniversary. As a way of expressing our deepest gratitude to God and all of our friends, supporters and staff that have made our mission possible, here is an inspirational story about one of our moms who turned her life around.

Dolly was six months pregnant and about to enter an abortion clinic. Directly above the abortion clinic was a pro-life ministry. It was there that Dolly, “met this beautiful lady and she told me we have an organization that can help you with your baby… Good Counsel.”

Right away Dolly was welcomed into a Good Counsel home where she was met with love, support, guidance, and hope when she had nothing and no way to support herself and her baby.  Dolly stayed at Good Counsel for a year and a half to complete her plan to reach her goals and move on to a new life with her son. Watch this video to see Dolly’s inspiring story.

Ash Wednesday Marks the Beginning of Lent 2018

Posted by | Feb 14, 2018 | No Comments

The Journey to Sacrificial Love begins today, Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2018.

Today’s Readings: Joel 2: 12-18; 2 Corinthians 5: 20-6: 2; Matthew 6: 1-6, 16-18

The prophet Joel calls us today to start our spiritual journey with our whole heart as we begin our fast. Why do we fast and abstain from pleasure? Because we know we are sinners and in great need of God’s mercy. Every journey needs to begin with a first step and today we take a step into church to receive ashes so that we may be marked by an outward sign that signifies an inner decision to repent. Read More
