Priests for Life in Amsterdam Day 3 and Beyond - August 2009

Aug 12, 2009
Amsterdam

The World Congress of Families wound up its 5th international conference with a final day of experts speaking on critical topics such as The Influence of the United Nations on Families Around the World, How Cloning and Stem Cell Research Affect Family Life and Euthanasia and Palliative Care.

Janet Morana, co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign and Executive Director of Priests for Life, gave a motivating, inspirational talk (simulcast live on the Internet) on How Life Issues Affect Women. She drew great interest and many questions about how to start campaigns in individual countries.  Read the presentation version or the full version of her talk.

Fr. Denis Wilde, OSA concelebrated Mass with bishops from The Netherlands and Spain and led the liturgical music daily.

Our Priests for Life international outreach desk was completely depleted of all the materials we brought and we even ended up donating luggage for Fr John of Nigeria to carry away the last few books, CDs, and brochures.

PFL commends the organizers of the WCF for their defense of the family and the right to life. Fr Pavone was honored to support this global initiative and pleased by the growing international support for our various ministries.
