Slight changes to Sunday’s Life Chain

Trail's Life Chain is cancelled due to construction, but organizers encourage participants to join with the Castlegar event.

The Life Chain which usually takes place along Victoria St. in Trail has been cancelled for this year only, due to the construction  in downtown Trail. Instead, the Rossland Trail Right to Life Society is encouraging our members to join with the Castlegar group at the Canadian Tire/Hwy. 3A intersection in Castlegar on Sunday from  2-3 pm.

This annual event takes place in over 1,800 cities  and towns in Canada and the US.  Trail held its first Life Chain in 1991 with 130 participants. Locally, Life Chains will be held in Castlegar, Nelson and Creston.

Local pastors and priests along with many in their congregations and others in the community will hold signs conveying messages of truth and hope;  Abortion Kills Children;  Abortion Hurts Women;  Adoption is the Loving Option;  Jesus Heals and Forgive;   She’s a Child Not a Choice;   Pregnant, Need Help? Call 1-877-88WOMAN.

The purpose of the chain is to foster awareness of this issue, that passing motorists would come to an understanding of the destructive nature of abortion  with the hope that they might re-examine their thinking, and become active in defending life.  Silent prayer will be offered for women (and men) who have been directly involved in abortion, those contemplating abortion, for doctors, for gov’t officials to put a law in place to protect preborn children.

Pro Lifers believe in actively helping women who face unplanned pregnancies, and support women who may be suffering from post-abortion syndrome by offering a toll free Provincial Number:  1-877-88WOMAN,  or and locally, the Crisis Pregnancy Centre in Nelson – 250-354-1199,  text – 250-354-8727,   or

Everyone is welcome to be a peaceful, prayerful participant. Contact: Marty Makway 364-2304
