In the world today, there are many outside influences that can affect the lives of young people. Most of what we see in the media presents a false reality - truth and happiness are distorted. This theme takes a look at how the world influences the way we live our lives, and how God presents us with a new, life-giving reality. The retreat has been organized by the Diocese of Manchester and is being run NET Ministries, a youth-to-youth ministry that encourages young Catholics to love Christ and embrace the life of the Church.

Nov 26 Sat 10AM Mass Problem Pregnancy Chapel, Prayer Vigil Protest, 495 Pleasant St. Worc

A few weeks ago a man named Anand Grover, who holds the the ponderous title "Special Rappoteur for Health" at the United Nations, issued a report to the UN that says a right to abortion already exists in international law. You say you have never heard of this character? Why should you? He is a bureaucrat at the UN. This means he is charged by the UN with marauding all over the world putting pressure on governments to do things like make baby-killing legal.
Please pause for a second and ponder three truths.
First, what happens at the UN often happens in secret, that is, far from the eyes of every day people from around the world. Nonetheless, these happenings affect everyone in the world.
Second, the actors in these pro-abortion dramas are totally unknown to even senior policy makers in government.   I would guess that the typical senior adviser in the UN State Department, the Canadian Foreign Ministry or other seats of foreign policy, have never ever ever heard of this fellow Anand Grover.
Third, you know about him and his report and the meeting this week because of the Friday Fax and for NO OTHER REASON. http://www.c-fam.org/

Lloyd Albert, who's in charge of the corporate giving for AAA Southern New England, told one of our email receivers that AAA is made up of 48 different "clubs" throughout the country. He assured [us] that AAA Southern New England has nothing to do with Planned Parenthood. He said any giving would go through him, and for the last 5 or 6 years that he's been there, he has not supported PP in any way. He thinks AAA must have made the boycott list because some of those clubs give money to PP.
