Pro-life Prayer Vigil at the Human Rights Memorial TONIGHT


Tonight at 9 pm, pro-lifers from across Canada will be holding a candle-lit prayer vigil at Ottawa’s Human Rights Memorial, on the corner of Elgin and Lisgar streets.  This takes place every year on the night before the National March for Life.

A few hundred people show up each year.  This year, I’ll be the MC for the event, which is hosted by the Servants of the Cross.  Please join us!
