This year’s “March for Life” at the New Brunswick Legislature will take place on Thursday, May 17th. This year the theme is “Pro-Women, Pro-Child, Pro-Life”. Heading the line-up are women speakers who are staunchly pro-life and proud of it: singer-songwriter Kathleen Dunn, who has her own pro-life group “Voice” and will perform a number of songs, and Elisha Lakin will share her moving testimony on how she is alive today only because her birth mother chose adoption.
Schedule of Events
10:00am — Mass at Dunstan’s Church with our Bishop Robert Harris
11:00am — Gathering music at the New Brunswick Legislature
11:30am — Formal program begins
1:00pm — Walk to Mother and Child House for closing Prayer Vigil followed by a reception at St. Dunstan’s Parish Hall
All Catholics are encouraged to make plans to attend this annual event. This is our one opportunity to stand up and witness to our faith as Christians by letting the government and MLA’s know we are looking to them to support the most basic human right: “Life”. You may wish to bring a lawn chair for the program at the Legislature. Buses are available for those who need transportation. For further information call NB Right to Life at 459-8990 or 1-888-796-9600.
The dates for a series of public information sessions will be announced shortly for those interested in renting a unit in the new Father Eugene O’Leary Seniors Complex that is being built across from Home Hardware on Loch Lomond Road. In the meantime, please visit the Columbian Charities website for more details on the complex.
Our next class is tonight Thursday, April 19th, 7pm, in the parish hall. The topic will be “The End Times and the Rapture”. It is not necessary to have attended any of the previous weeks in order to participate. For more information and weekly course outlines and handouts, visit the Religious Education section of our site.
