Sisters of Life Centre Toronto

It was an early initiative of Archbishop Thomas Collins to invite the Sisters of Life to Toronto.

Pictured above with George Cardinal Pell, they were founded in 1991 by the late John Cardinal O'Connor, Archbishop of New York. The Sisters of Life is a contemplative and active religious community of women for the protection and enhancement of the sacredness of every human life. In addition to the traditional religious vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, the Sisters of Life take a fourth vow; "to protect and enhance the sacredness of human life."

The Sisters of Life have recently opened a new centre to serve pregnant women vulnerable to the pressures of abortion. The Sisters of Life Centre is located at the former St. Catherine of Siena Parish, 1099 Danforth Avenue, Toronto (between Donlands and Greenwood). The Sisters provide support and assistance to women who are pregnant and in need. They also train the lay faithful to serve alongside the Sisters as Co-Workers of Life. On Saturday, 12 June at 1:00pm, Archbishop Collins will offer the opening Mass and Blessing of the Centre, which will be followed by an open house. If you would like more information or if you would like to refer a women who is pregnant to the Sisters of Life please call us at: (416) 463-2722 toronto@sistersoflife.org

When I read Father Z's posting on his blog, I thought, that's what you can expect from a large segment
of the American media now.



This wouldn't reflect/mirror Canadian values?   G8 ... G20
  Toronto
 



Pray for some common sense!



Give support to the Sisters of Life!

Mike,

Sad to say, it does reflect "Canadian Values" or lack thereof. The Quebec Assembly voted unanimously to declare abortion a right...yes 100%.

And look what is over the Speaker's Chair.

As a Canadian this is just what we need. Visible witnesses to Catholic Culture at it's best!

We need these sisters in Vancouver as well!

God bless them and I pray for more vocations to their community.
