Our namesake, Brother Anthony Kowalczyk has been declared Venerable by Pope Francis!
Officially having "heroic virtue" means Brother Anthony, a Polish-born blacksmith-turned-priest who quietly toiled for 36 years in Alberta, is an important step closer to sainthood.
Keep those prayers coming!
"Help Save a Life"
Calendar project is now in it's 13th year!
Bishops Support for the 2013 Calendar. We have received letters of support for the worthwhile project from the following bishops:
- Archbishop Smith, Edmonton Archdiocese
- Biship Chatlain, Diocese of Mackenzie-Fort Smith
- Most Rev. David Motiuk, Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Edmonton
- Archbishop Pettipas, Grouad-McLennan Archdiocese
Backgrounder. In the spring of 2000, Brother Anthony Council #10014 (St. Albert, Alberta, Canada) undertook a pro-life calendar project and sought involvement from local junior high and high school students. It was a pilot project called "Help Save a Life," in which the most inspirational student submissions of art and poetry were selected and printed in a year 2001 calendar.
We believed that the voices of students, through their art and poetry, could "save life" and promote a positive attitude for life. It was our wish that those purchasing the calendar would place it in their kitchens or other prominent places and use it on a daily basis. In this way it was hoped that a pro-life attitude would be developed and nurtured.
International Recognition! The November 2000 issue of Columbia Magazine published a feature article on our freshly launched pilot project, the Pro-life Calendar for 2001. [An HTML version of the article is available here.]
The 2001 calendar was deemed to be a success! Almost $10,000 was generated from the sales and turned over to support pro-life activities in Alberta and the North West Territories!
Each year, thousands more have been raised by calendar sales and been directed toward pro-life initiatives in Alberta and NWT.
