As the long-awaited weekend approaches, the excitement mounts. Over forty enthusiastic pro-life students from Windsor have been working diligently on the upcoming Ontario Students for Life, LIFE IS GREAT!, for a whole year.
The conference will take place on October 20 – 22 in Windsor, Ontario, at St. Thomas of Villanova High School. It is going to be amazing!
There are over 20 excellent speakers lined up. Topping the list are Sarah and Betty Smith. After miraculously surviving an abortion, Sarah has become a powerful pro-life voice in the battle against abortion. Her mother deeply regrets that abortion which killed Sarah’s twin brother. Their stirring testimony breaks hearts, changes minds and saves lives.
Frank Tanana will also be present. Mr. Tanana pitched 7 ½ years for the Detroit Tigers, and is a member of Pro-Life Athletes. Tanana’s pro-life message really Hits Home, and no doubt it will bring cheering conference delegates to their feet.
Other pro-life related topics being addressed include: single moms and dads, ultrasound, post abortion syndrome, adoption, pro-life laws and politics, chastity, teen suicide, drinking and driving, and euthanasia. Ontario Students for Life organizers Kathleen Ross and Troy Scotchburn will be running workshops designed to give both High School and University students practical pro-life contacts, resources and guidelines for activities to work with when they go home.
Ontario Students for Life is inter-denominational, delegates are invited to celebrate and pray together at Catholic Mass of the Interfaith Prayer Service. On Saturday evening conference delegates will be treated to a delicious banquet meal followed by the evenings entertainment, the famous OSFL dance and, new this year, a karaoke café.
