Girard parish a strong show at Pro-Life Breakfast

Parishioners of SS. Cyril and Methodius Church Support Organization’s Efforts

by Victor Wheeler

People For Life, Inc. of Erie, Pennsylvania held its 31st Annual Pro-Life Prayer Breakfast on Jan. 17, 2009 at the Ambassador Banquet and Conference Center in Erie. In attendance were 19 members of SS. Cyril and Methodius Church of Girard, Pa. and their pastor, Father Andrew Deskevich.

Special recognition was given to SS. Cyril and Methodius Church for the strong showing of participants at the breakfast, which was held on an extremely frigid and snowy winter day.

Father Andrew is doing an exemplary job on the Erie Pro-Life scene, as evidenced by the strong showing of Byzantine Catholics from his small yet active Girard parish.
