Father’s Day Memorial Vigil [Prayer Service]: In memory of children who were never born, either by the heartbreak of miscarriage or an intentional act of abortion; and the mothers and fathers affected by their loss. father

A prayerful vigil to commemorate the unborn that were aborted at the hospitals in Haldimand-Norfolk in the past, and those babies lost at present from any ongoing pregnancy termination procedures.

An hour of prayer to remember all babies conceived but never born, especially the victims of abortion.  Prayer that all life matters from conception to natural death, and that babies in the womb deemed 'imperfect' (through screening) are worthy to be given an equal chance of life, and not be discarded. 

We cannot let the brief lives of abortion’s innocent victims be utterly forgotten. We never knew their names. We never saw their faces. But they should not be forgotten.  Also remember the forgotten fathers.    Fathers who were powerless to save the lives of their unborn children.

Personal prayers welcome.

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 2018 Important Dates

Sanctity of Life 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.
