SPIRITUAL ADOPTION Project


 

 

1. Description of the Project

Spiritual Adoption is a Pro-Life Project that consists on praying for babies who are in danger of being aborted.  In order to implement this project, little cards are distributed containing a prayer that is to be said from the baby’s conception until birth. The day that these prayers are started, a baby conceived on that date and who is at risk of being aborted is spiritually adopted. Once the nine months are completed, a new spiritual adoption may begin.

Beginning on September 2011, the OFS has promoted this Project during Masses celebrated in various churches of the city, in order to motivate more people to take part in this initiative.

The Canadian Food for Children consists of loading 20 and 40 ft. containers with food, medicine, clothes and other household items twice a year. Along with the shipping of the above, the fraternity does two food drives and fundraisers to support the project. We also have support for the charity (CFFC) from the CWL (The Catholic Women’s League of Canada) National Chapter. One of our fraternity’s members presented a petition to the National Convention which was approved. These containers go to developing countries worldwide.
