Pro-Life Billboards

Great News! Two landowners have agreed to place Pro-Life Billboards on their Champaign and Ford County properties. Most of the funding for one sign is already committed! Additional help is needed to move this project forward:

  1. Donations of any size are needed to cover the cost of materials. Volunteer labor will be used to make the frames and install the signs. Checks may be made out to Holy Cross Church-please reference Pro-Life Billboards in the subject line-and mailed to 405 West Clark Street, Champaign, IL. 61820.
  2. We encourage additional individuals, churches or businesses to consider placing a bill board on their property (Signs are 8' X 4' and 6' tall).
  3. Prayers are needed that these signs will help promote respect for the sanctity of all life and that those facing an unplanned pregnancy will find the help they need to choose life. 
  4. Questions, comments or suggestions-please contact Renee Mullen at 217-607-0811 (landline) 765-237-7500 (cell) or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
