Cambridge Right to Life
Please join Cambridge Right to Life for our Annual General Meeting Thursday, November 29 at 7 p.m at St. Patrick’s Parish Hall, 53 Wellington St. This year the meeting will feature the documentary film, “Fatal Flaws.” This important film shines a critical light on the perverse reality that we are now training our medical students how to kill some of their patients.

Do you have ideas on how to support families in our Diocese? We want to hear from you! “The family is the community in which, from childhood, one can learn moral values, begin to honor God, and make good use of freedom. Family life is an initiation into life in society. (CCC #2207)” Home is the setting where an individual’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual growth is supported. Like a garden, a home must be tended, appreciated, nurtured and respected in order to thrive. Families today need more support than ever as they raise the future generation. Are you willing to add your voice at our gathering this fall to discover ways we can help families? If yes, call Lena at 905-528-7988 ext. 2249, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

The Order has been called “the strong right arm of the Church,” and has been praised by popes, and world leaders, for support of the Church, programs of evangelization and Catholic education, civic involvement and aid to those in need.
