 Project Rachel Retreat - Friday, April 19-21, St. Mary of Egypt Refuge (Madoc) - Project Rachel at St. Mary of Egypt Refuge is a ministry to women who have lost a child to abortion, and who often suffer the pain of this loss alone, filled with shame and regret. These women are welcomed on a Project Rachel weekend by the Christian community -- with hospitality, with the beauty of nature at St. Mary of Egypt Refuge in Madoc, with good food, and without judgement. There are opportunities for healing by way of Scripture, prayer, and the loving presence of our Lord in the sacraments of the Eucharist and Reconciliation.  There are many ways for volunteers to participate in these weekends -- assisting the team's retreat, cooking, providing transportation, advertising the retreat by word of mouth, and by prayer.  For more information, to register for the weekend, or to volunteer please find our contact number at

 As St. John Paul II has said of women who have had an abortion, “The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. To the same Father and his mercy you can with sure hope entrust your child. With the friendly and expert help and advice of other people, and as a result of your own painful experience, you can be among the most eloquent defenders of everyone’s right to life. Through your commitment to life, whether by accepting the birth of other children or by welcoming and caring for those most in need of someone to be close to them, you will become promoters of a new way of looking at human life.” (Evangelium Vitae)

Reclaiming Redemptive Suffering (Webinar): A Spiritual Approach to the Meaning of Suffering - Wed., Feb. 21; 7pm, Via Zoom by Registration.  The Canadian Catholic Bioethics Institute invites you to join us for a free webinar.  Many of us have lost any sense of 'meaning' in suffering. Some want to avoid it at all costs, even choosing early death. Our Catholic faith talks about 'redemptive' suffering, but what does that mean? Erin Kinsella will discuss this through the lens of her experience of chronic illness and developing spirituality of suffering.  For registration and inquiries please email CCBI at to receive a Zoom invitation.
