COLF Message for the 2013 National Week for Life and the FamilyMonday, May 6, 2013
On the occasion of the first National Week for Life and the Family, May 12 to 19, 2013, the Catholic Organization for Life and Family (COLF) joins Catholics from across the country and the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) by releasing the message “Celebrate life! Celebrate family!” In its Message, COLF expresses its gratitude to the Bishops for this pastoral initiative. The Week for Life and the Family is “a great opportunity to celebrate the joys of family life and to acknowledge everything that is being done (and needs to be done) to support the family!”, COLF states. The Week for Life and the Family is a CCCB initiative that dioceses promote or adapt according to their own specific needs, resources, and pastoral priorities.
