    I wanted to share a recent writing from my website, http://www.thedeliverancenetwork.com that upholds the truth about abortion that Donald posted about recently. I guess God wants to use my witness to his truth, as He dropped a reporter in my lap most unexpectedly and a documentary of my profound spiritual experiences and stance on abortion will be released Dec. 8th…Share my story with anyone you think it will help!

  • PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Ottawa, May 18th, 2016

    Archdiocese of Ottawa comments on articles in the Ottawa Citizen concerning cases of clergy abuse
    In response to the articles on cases relating to the abuse of minors by priests of the Archdiocese of Ottawa that appeared in the print edition of the Ottawa Citizen on May 18th, the Archdiocese provided the following comment:
    One case of the abuse of a vulnerable person is one case too many. When the abuse is compounded by a betrayal of trust as is the case of the abuse of a minor by a priest, the scandal is even greater. The articles which appeared in the Ottawa Citizen edition of May 18th put into stark relief the multiple cases of abuse committed by several priests of our diocese, in the decades beginning in the 1950’s. The cost to victims, to their families, as well as to our Catholic faith community, cannot be calculated.
    For many years now, we have been engaged in a process of justice and reconciliation with victims of abuse by members of our clergy. The reality is that most victims now choose the criminal and civil courts to seek redress. Given their experience of priests and of the church, we can understand their decision. Necessarily, we engage with victims in the forum which they c…[Read more]
