Choose Life License Plate


I am thrilled to report that the Wisconsin Department of Transportation has recently made the beautiful Choose Life specialty license plates available to purchase.

While I was Director of Pro-Life Wisconsin, we worked for over 10 years through the legislative/administrative process to get these plates approved. After clearing many hurdles, Dan Miller current Director of Pro-Life Wisconsin partnering with Wisconsin Family Council has brought our dream to fruition.

Wisconsin now joins the ranks of 31 other states with Choose Life specialty plates. Your support for these wonderful plates is very important. In order for these plates to remain an option in Wisconsin,500 plates must be in circulation at any given time.

The additional $25 annual fee (beyond your annual plate registration amount) goes to Choose Life Wisconsin Foundation. The first time you order your plates, there is a one time  $15 additional issuance fee.

Choose Life Wisconsin Inc. was set up by Pro-Life Wisconsin and Wisconsin Family Council to grant money to pro-life crisis pregnancy centers throughout our state. All of your $25 (tax deductible) specialty plate fee is used to help these life saving ministries. Choose Life Wisconsin Inc. is a 501(c)(3).

My husband and I have already bought our plates. Please proudly join us in this simple life affirming, life saving effort.

The order process is easy. Simply visit  – to download the registration form. Follow the instructions on the form and send it in with your check. If your annual plate registration is not due soon you can still order your Choose Life plates now. Simply follow the special directions on the site for your specific circumstances. You can also personalize your plate number for an extra charge.

If you have any questions, concerns or need a form you can call Dan Miller Pro-Life Wisconsin State Director and Vice President of Choose Life Wisconsin Inc. at 262-796-1111 Ext. 11.

Choose life today. May God bless you.

In Christ,

Peggy Hamill

Seven Sisters Apostolate


Mission: The Seven Sisters Apostolate is a call to strengthen the Church by ensuring that a Holy Hour is prayed each day of the week for the sole intention of a specific priest or bishop – a “holy wasting” (cf. Mt. 26:10) or lavishing of prayer for his deeper conformity to Christ.

Structure: A core group of 7 women (each taking one day of the week) with one as the anchoress (coordinator) who respond to the call to pray for their parish priest.  Additional women may make themselves available as substitutes.  The Holy Hour can be prayed at any time during your assigned day – when possible, prayed in the presence of our Eucharistic Lord.  Initial commitment is made for one year, discerning the call to continue or invite a replacement to maintain core group of seven.
