Walk for Life poster

In 2020, Voice for Life is planning to hold its Walk for Life event on the second or third Saturday in September, likely from 9:30 a.m. to noon, starting at the Voice for Life Office, 29-B Peel St., Simcoe.

Registration opens at 9:30 a.m.; Walk starts at 10 a.m. Routes are in downtown Simcoe.

We are asking people to sign up to participate in this family-friendly Walk and raise support for Life through pledges. We are also asking for dedicated supporters who may not be able to make it to the Walk, to financially sponsor the event. The extra financial support is greatly needed as this is our only fundraiser for the year.

Download a sample pledge sheet here.

More general information is available here. Explanation could be subject to change. If you still need further details, please e-mail Voice for Life or call 519-428-5146.

 


National Life Chain - Sunday, October 4

[Usually the first Sunday in October]

2:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Only a prayer chain can be a Life Chain

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

Not sure of the situation for 2020.

To date, for the Life Chain in our area of Haldimand-Norfolk, meet at the corner of Hwys 3 (Queensway) and 24 (Norfolk St.) in Simcoe, or Main St. and Talbot St. (Hwy 3) in Jarvis.

Signs provided. Event happens rain or shine.

Please bring a gift or donation for your local Food Bank.
(Formula and diapers are always needed!)

 

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.

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 2020 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.
