Pro Life March, Charlottetown, May 28, 2017

Garth McKinnon posted 6 photos today to Facebook along with the following.

“Last time I was at big rally for life in Charlottetown, about 300 people showed up and the papers only reported 150.
This time I thought I would post some pictures ahead of the papers to prove the over 300 in attendance.
Once again they had a reporter talking extensively to the 5 or 6 pro choice counter protesters. Didn’t see them talking to any of ours. So don’t believe everything you read in the Island news. You won’t get the full picture (so to speak).”

The celebration began with a public procession around the block of St. Dunstan’s Basilica lead by several altar servers and the Knights of Columbus Honor Guard.

A statue of Our Lady of Fatima was carried high on a decorated platform and more than a 100 parishioners followed behind singing, waving streamers and carrying blue and white balloons.

The group then processed into the Basilica where they prayed the rosary and celebrated mass with Fr John Molina.

A reception was then held in the lower level of the Basilica highlighted with cake and ice cream.

This celebration coincided with Pope Francis’ pilgrimage to Fatima where he canonized two of the three Portuguese children whose visions of the Virgin Mary 100 years ago marked one of the most important events of the 20th century Catholic Church. The third visionary died in 2005 at the age of 97. Her cause for sainthood has begun.

Fathers For Good

Fathers can learn from Joseph’s example

By Jason Godin

The Church celebrates the feast of St. Joseph the Worker on May 1. Husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary, foster father of Jesus, silent in word but not in action, Joseph produced a model legacy of masculine faith. The carpenter displayed prudence in judgment and action as well as presence for his spouse, his child, and his community.
