Joe and Ann with Fr. Paul Marx and Abbot John Klassen
Joe and Ann Scheidler were honored to be sponsors of Human Life International’s celebration of its 35th anniversary at the Marriott City Center in Minneapolis, MN on March 24.
Fr. Paul Marx, founder of HLI, was awarded the Cardinal von Galen award for his outstanding witness for life for the past four decades. Fr. Marx will also be celebrating his 60th anniversary as a Benedictine priest in May.
It was Fr. Marx who told Joe that his intense interest in ending abortion was a special grace from God, and gave Joe the confidence to go forward full-time into pro-life work.
Pope John Paul II once told Fr. Marx that pro-life activism was “the most important work on earth.” Joe Scheidler and the Pro-Life Action League are honored to have been called to do this work.
