Important Life Chain Update
Due to the new outdoor gathering limits in Ontario, we are asking you to RSVP by October 1st if you plan to attend one of our Life Chain events in Guelph, Fergus, or Rockwood. Outdoor gatherings are limited to 25 people, so to adhere to the guidelines we may be hosting multiple smaller events at different locations in each city. To RSVP, and for more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your willingness to stand with us!
What is Life Chain?
Life Chain is a powerful witness of the pro-life message not only in our city, but throughout Canada and the US. Now in its 30th year, the annual event invites people of faith across North America to pray and witness on behalf of our voiceless fellow citizens - pre-born children who are imperiled by abortion.
At each location, participants hold signs with powerful and thought-provoking "Life" messages: Adoption, the Loving Option, Abortion Kills Children and Abortion Harms Women, as well as signs with pregnancy help information and messages of forgiveness for those who have had an abortion.
By lining the sidewalk with these message for all to see, we are bringing the pro-life message to many people who might not otherwise hear it. We are standing up for the unborn with a visible, peaceful message of truth and hope.
Most importantly, the hour is devoted to prayer to end abortion.
In Guelph & Wellington County, there is currently a limit of 100 people for outdoor gatherings. To safely move forward with the Life Chain event, we will be adhering to the gathering limit and asking participants to space themselves 2 meters apart (except for those within the same household or bubble). It is advisable to have a mask on hand, in case anyone should approach you to ask questions. We will have designated volunteers at the Life Chain event to help answer questions from passers-by and encourage safe social distancing. The volunteers helping to distribute pro-life signs to participants will have sanitized their hands before handling the signs.
If you have never participated in a Life Chain before, we encourage you to join us! Those who are not able to stand for the duration of the Life Chain are encouraged to bring folding chairs. Signs will be provided. Please make it a priority to join us as we spend a prayerful hour bringing the pro-life message to our community.
