Culture of Life Club

The following excerpt is from Bishop Crosby’s letter from the Diocese of Hamilton to parishioners on September 15, 2011…

…we are asked to think about the value of each human person, regardless of their age or personal challenges. From conception until natural death, we recognize that each person is created in God’s own image... As Pope Benedict has said, “human life must be defended and supported at every stage… Each one of us gives witness to the value of life: by the support we offer to those around us, by our engagement in life issues in our society and by our prayers, hoping that one day we can achieve a universal understanding of the dignity of every individual."

St. Mary’s students give witness to the value of life through the Culture of Life/Pro Life Club. We meet monthly to create awareness and support to the unborn and to each other.

The highlight of the club is attending the March for Life Protest in Ottawa in May of each year. A busload of students leave at 3:00 a.m. to head to Ottawa in time for the Pro Life mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, followed by a silent, peaceful but joyous protest with 25,000 people, supporting life. After that we immediately head back home, making a 17 hour day seem very fast.

Please see the chaplain for more information if you are interesting in joining us.
