National Life Chain - Sunday, October 6

[Usually the first Sunday in October]

2:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Only a prayer chain can be a Life Chain

Voice for Life is now hosting two Life Chains - one in Simcoe, the other in Jarvis.

Meet at the corner of Hwys 3 (Queensway) and 24 (Norfolk St.) in Simcoe.
Or at the corner of Hwys 3 (Talbot St.) and 6 (Main St.) in Jarvis.

Signs provided. Rain or shine.

If you are willing to be a Co-ordinator for another Life Chain in a community within our area of Haldimand-Norfolk please e-mail: Voice for Life.

 

The National Life Chain is the largest peaceful, prayerful, pro-life, public witness in the world. Life Chain is held simultaneously in more than 200 cities across Canada each year. It is held on the first Sunday in October, and for most locations, it runs from 2 pm - 3 pm.

Life Chain is an easy way to get involved in pro-life. Just show up for one hour, stand on the side walk with others who are not ashamed to be a public witness, and pray for an end to abortion. You can be a light in a darkened world as you help put an end to abortion through prayer.

For more information on National Life Chain Sunday, and its purpose and significance, check out www.NationalLifeChain.org and www.LifeChain.net

What is Life Chain?, by Royce Dunn
We are a prayer chain ministry on the sidewalks of America, Canada, and a few other nations. Each participant holds an approved pro-life sign and endeavours to be a compassionate and peaceful public witness for the sanctity of human life. Accordingly, Life Chain's first mission is to minister to its own participants; and if we are receptive to God's promptings, He empowers us to minister truth about abortion to the motoring public. Through that process, Life Chain changes hearts and saves lives.

OTHER 2019 Important Dates


Sanctity of Life Sunday - January Third Sunday

Watch video

The third Sunday of January was officially pronounced Sanctity of Human Life Sunday in order to remember the two infamous court cases that removed protection to a secure and safe environment for the child in the womb.

On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court of the United States, (in other words a mere nine men out of the entire population), determined in Roe vs. Wade, that every State had a duty to give women unfettered access to abortion until the birth of the child.

On January 28, 1988 the Canadian Supreme Court in a 3-2 decision, struck down the criminal code law regarding abortion and left Canada with NO LAW to protect children in the womb.

A day not only to remember that Human Life is sacred, but it is an anniversary date that causes us to remember and grieve the millions of deliberately aborted lives that could have blessed childless couples, filled school rooms, and contributed their talents to our culture and economy.  Their loss is beyond measure or comprehension.


March 21: Down Syndrome Awareness Day

Annually observed on March 21 to raise public awareness of Down syndrome, a congenital disorder caused by having an extra 21st chromosome.

The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.
