Octoberfest! Doula circle coming soon and more...
So, this month we are offering a Doula Circle and our guest speaker will be talking about "Why Pro-Life Doulas?"---Date 10-21-22 so a week from Friday we will be doing our Doula circle - time to be announced. If you are in our newsletters, you will get info - or message us at firstname.lastname@example.org - thanks!
October is one of my favorite months of the year as it is finally feeling cooler where we live at and the 90 and 100 degree weather of summer is gone till next year (really wish it wasn't that hot in the summer here). At least we have all four seasons here - we get a real winter, spring, summer and fall here!! The leaves are starting to turn colors and I feel like going outside to exercise.
So, what do you like about October? Write a comment if you like below.
Also, October is the Month of the Holy Rosary - so this is a good time to break out your Rosary and pray together as a family or pray when you are driving around, etc. This also might be good time for a Rosary Novena. Now, there's a 54 day Rosary Novena - but I have not been good at that kind - so I think I am just going to do a 9 day one and 9 day of Thanksgiving - make it shorter and maybe it might actually be easier to keep up with for me!
Also, this month is one of birthday(s) for family members and our wedding anniversary! I guess fall is just a good time to get married in and less being in the "summer wedding season".
We also wanted to announce that we are leaving PayPal at the end of the month for payment processor - they seem to want to be a watchdog - well not for me - I'll just take Square or some other payment processor. For now, I think I am going to be doing Square and they have some other options to pay if using their linking system. I just need to figure out how to set up stuff on the website. You can also choose just to be invoiced via Square. Thank you for your patience as we move towards not supporting PayPal.
