Sharon, a long time officer of CCRTL, lost her life to cancer in 2010. To honor her efforts, we celebrate her life in a potluck dinner in February and invite a speaker. In past years these speakers have been representatives of local churches (Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox) and area pro-life groups (Project Rachel). This is an excellent way to get to know us and many of the areal pro-life leaders.
Beginning on Ash Wednesday, we participate in the 40 Days for Life, Praying across the street from Corning Planned Parenthood for their workers and clients to have a change of heart and protect human life from conception
Every year, around the first week of August, we set up a booth the Chemung County Fair. In 2015, our booth even won 2nd place. Our table every year attracts young and old with Kitty Jacobs’ life sized dolls of every stage of unborn life. This, along with our pamphlets has saved several babies! This is a family-friendly event. Come join us!
The First Sunday in October, Give witness to your Christian Faith and give praise to Our Father, the author of Life by standing on one of these busy street corners and praying silently for all those with an unplanned pregnancy, that God’s gift of Life is preserved. Pray for those who made the mistake of abortion that they find healing and the forgiveness of Jesus Christ.
