The Priests for Life Canada 2017 Pro-Life Clergy Symposium was an incredible success. Members of the clergy from all over Canada gathered in downtown Ottawa to participate in groundbreaking discussions on pastoral care in the wake of legalized euthanasia and assisted suicide. It was an incredible time of faith and fellowship focused on responding to the needs of individuals who might consider choosing to end their own lives and those who might be impacted by this decision. The presentations by Fr Thomas Lynch, Dr Jose Pereira and Fr Stefano Penna were thought provoking and extremely well done. The engagement from the participants was incredible and made for rich conversation that enhanced the personal ministry of each individuals and paved the way for more rich discussion back in their home parishes. A special thank you to the folks at St Theresa’s for the use of their facilities, to Lolachers for providing wonderful meals and to the Cartier Suites Hotel. A huge thank you also goes out to the Knights of Columbus and our many generous supporters who made this event possible.
