Dear brother priests, religious and lay faithful of the Archdiocese of Vancouver:

Today we are celebrating the vocation of fathers, who are the first and foremost protectors of the family. This is also Pro-life Sunday when all of us are called to pray about our obligation to safeguard human life from its conception to its natural end.

Of particular concern in our country is the absence of any law that recognizes and protects the rights of unborn Canadians. We are one of only two countries in the world in which abortion is legal at any time during pregnancy. Canada needs to reopen the public debate on abortion in Parliament, in the media and in our communities. Having no law whatsoever is unacceptable in a civilized country.

Therefore, I urge you to make your voices heard in the public square. I ask you earnestly to support campaigns to promote legal protection for the unborn as well as publicly funded services that offer women and families real alternatives to abortion.

Please be generous, “sacrificially generous,” in your support of the Pro-life Sunday collection. These monies will help to provide alternatives to abortion, healing to those who have chosen abortion and support for those working to create a culture of life in Canada.

With gratitude for your support of the pro-life initiatives in the Archdiocese and a request for your generous support, I offer you my blessing the assurance of my prayers, I remain

Sincerely yours in Christ, J. Michael Miller, CSB Archbishop of Vancouver
