November 3rd marks the end of the 40 Days for Life in which many of you participated through prayer and fasting. The Closing Rally will take place this Sunday, 3rd of November 2013, at Bank and Sparks Streets at 7:00 pm. The opening prayer and address will be given by Archbishop Terence Prendergast, Archbishop of Ottawa. Afterwards there will be an update from Doris Gagnon, director of Sidewalk Counselling (under the umbrella of Helpers of God’s Precious Infants). A young single mother, Amy Beaudoin, will tells us what prompted her to choose life for her baby and the webmaster for Forty Days for Life, John Pacheco will give us an overview as to how the campaign went.
