I give thanks to God for all the work we've been doing lately on behalf of faith, family and life, from conception to natural death.
There's of course our participation in the fantastic child protection marches across Canada; the good fruits of these exceptional marches are still being harvested!
At the beginning of the month, we were also in Quebec City at the Conservative Party convention, where we were able to put forward a number of pro-family policies that will now have to inform the party's decision-makers on how to proceed in the next election.
The Conservative Party convention also saw the publication of a new French-language anti-abortion leaflet:
Entitled "Five reasons not to have an abortion", this leaflet can save lives! It's the first in a series of a dozen that we'll be putting together on a variety of subjects, including abortion, euthanasia (so-called "medical aid in dying"), marriage, faith, religion and the state, secularism...
Finally, we're preparing for two upcoming events: the first is the "Life Chain" (see below), the pro-life, anti-abortion demonstrations that will take place this Sunday, October 1, in hundreds of locations across Canada, including a dozen in Quebec (see below).
The second is the 40 Days for Life vigil, which for Quebec this time will be held in Sherbrooke from today, 27 September, until 5 November 2023.
We're also starting the vital autumn 2023 fundraising campaign today. You know that we can only do our job with your loyal support! Please show your support by sending us a donation.
Our target is $12,000. I hope you can help us reach it by the end of our campaign on 18 October.
