On Divine Mercy Sunday in April, 1992, the 27-year-old director of Defend Life approached Defend Life founder Jack Ames after Mass.
"You'll have to find yourself a new director," he told the startled Ames.
Accompanying the dynamic young, 6-foot-4 attorney and former college basketball star were Ames, Scheidler and local pro-life activist Sheila Wharam.
"It was a very cordial meeting, but nothing was accomplished," recalled Ames; "they had been telling their lies for so long, they believed them.
Reflecting on Father Sikorsky's path to the priesthood, Ames declared, "I think the moral of this story is, when you're out there evangelizing for life, you never know what can happen!"

Jack Ames, founder and director of Maryland's Defend Life, was recently brushing dust off that grave. Ames knows well the tale of the nearly three dozen babies in that single grave.
If you should come upon a grave marker with many names listed on it, there's a good chance it's marking a grave filled with unborn children killed at a nearby abortion mill. That's the case at Immaculate Conception Cemetery just outside the town of Elkton, Md.
Jack Ames, the founder and director of Maryland's Defend Life, was recently brushing dust off that grave. Ames knows well the tale of the nearly three dozen babies in that single grave.
Standing over it, he told CBN News, "And they're buried right here where we're standing on this sacred ground in a common casket, all 35 of them.
"The authorities here in Elkton became suspicious and they raided the abortion mill," Ames recalled.
"Because these babies like all of us were created in the image and likeness of Almighty God," Ames said. "They were babies; they were human beings from the moment of conception. And they deserve to be commemorated, to be memorialized."
Organizers said if they can get thousands of people out to these vigils to remember the deaths of the unborn, it could help awaken the conscience of a nation that very rarely sees the actual cost of abortion.
"We want to publicize this to the high heavens that every day in America 3,500 babies are being killed, murdered if you will, by surgical abortion," Ames stated.
