TOLEDO—The Respect Life Committee Prayer Group of Toledo Christ the King has sponsored two pro-life billboards on Bancroft and Sylvania avenues since 2004.
The original concept was the brainchild of parishioners Bon Duritsky, Joan Duritsky and Linda Penn. The billboards feature Our Lady of Guadalupe with photos of infants representing every race. In bold letters at the top reads: “Choose life — Your Mother Did.” Over the years the committee has received numerous testimonies of young women seeing these signs and deciding not to have an abortion.
Members of the committee believe these billboards are very effective tools for getting the pro-life message out, however they are in need of sponsors to help fund this effort.
Donations can be sent to Christ the King Parish, 4100 Harvest Lane, Toledo, Ohio 43623-4399, with checks made out to Christ the King Church and the word “Billboard” written in the memo section.
