Today, I am overjoyed to announce that Downers Grove OB/GYN PC will officially open on July 1, 2013. This has come after many days of hope and disappointment, and is a true measure of God’s time and Will.
This day could not have come without the will and direction of Jesus Christ, the support of the Holy Spirit and the intercessions of the dear Virgin Mary our Queen. St Joseph and St Michael have been instrumental, and my Guardian Angel has worked overtime.
I have been praying for the development of a center that would be responsive to the increasing number of women seeking natural means to preserve their fertility. I have been inspired by the Ethical and Religious Directives of the Catholic Church and have been speaking out about the issues of the Commodification of Life for more than a year.
Then came the possibility of a group that would breathe financial life into the St Anne’s Center. We danced for about a year or so, but in the end we had irreconcilable differences that could have been the results of the Evil One, or the work of the Lord. The fact that once we broke away, we were able to line up the funds to start fairly quickly might give you an indication……
However, we were only able to completely develop the center over the last couple of days, and the last agreement was signed this morning.
SO…here it is…a center that will offer women a warm, supportive environment, offering the complete range of women’s health care from adolescence through menopause. The idea is to preserve women’s fertility when they are young, follow them through the creation of their families, and offer a gentle means to ease into the changes of life. We will not offer artificial contraception, support all means of NFP (actually offer an oasis for teachers as well as seminars and networking), no sterilization, no IVF or Artificial insemination. The center is open to all people of all faiths, and seeks to develop an ongoing professional relationship that stretches across the reproductive life span. I will be joined in this apostolate by Dr Robert Lawler, a friend and brother in the Faith who will bring his own brand of excellent care to the clinic
Appointments can be made through 630-312-8008. We have a great woman, Jillian, who will start calling people on the list developed through this number starting Monday to offer appointment times. A facebook page and a web site are under development, and will be available soon. In the next week or two our phones will be installed (as well as the internet) and we will be moving into our office at 1121 Warren Street, suite 200 Downers Grove, IL
Once the phones are installed, we will be getting a new office number. There had been some stories that the number would not change. However, just like moving from a home, the 312-8008 number will work for a time.
I cannot begin to thank the many people who have prayed and hoped for this development all over the world. May God bless you all abundantly!.. I will continue to write here for a time, and when the new web site is developed (which might have the URL Stannecenter.com…wouldn’t that be a hoot) I will start to make announcements there.
Thanks and may God be blessed!
