Goodbye Louise

Louise is going away for the summer doing a mission with "Crossroads Pro-life". Here is the link. I'll miss you Louise. May God richly bless you. I took a picture after our time together today. Here is Rosie, Tannis and Louise.

"For we are His workmanship, created in Jesus Christ for His good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. - Ephesians 2:10

March For Life - Ottawa

On Thursday May 12th we went to the annual March for Life in Ottawa. We went on a bus with our church. A few people from other local churches came on our bus as well. We left Almonte at 8:15 in the morning to drive into the city. We went to Mass at St. Patricks Basilica first. After that the bus took us to the Hill to hear some speeches and singing. The March started at 1:30. Reports said approximately 15,000 in attendance. About 2500 more people then last year!

That is why the greatest destroyer of peace and love is abortion." - Mother Teresa
