  1. ALPHA Opportunity in Sudbury  |February 1 and Thursdays till April  |New Sudbury

FROM REV. AIDEN ARSTRONG (CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION): ALPHA

 An Alpha program will be running at the Church of the Ascension in partnership with the Samaritan center and Restoration Church beginning in February.

 Alpha is a program that explores life’s big questions from a Christian perspective with those who have little or no Church background and with those who have been Christians a long time.

 If you are interested in taking the course or helping out with this exciting ministry, contact Father Aidan      armstong.aidan@gmail.com.

 6:30 pm at Church of the Ascension, 1476 Spark Street, , P3A 2E1..New Sudbury                           All Welcome!

 Editor’s Note:   Rev. Aiden welcomes you to sign up at any time in the 10 weeks.

  1. Sign up for ON PC membership, in order to vote for the next Leader   

 The deadline to purchased a PC Party of Ontario membership is February 16 at 5:00pm EST!

This is a great opportunity for pro-life voters to have their voices heard by purchasing a membership to the PC Party of Ontario and vote for a pro-life candidate. At RightNow, we will work to encourage, vet, and support well-rounded pro-lifers to run for the leadership. The next part is up to you.

 Pro-life voters cannot have a voice in the PC Party of Ontario leadership race unless they have purchased a membership to vote. The leadership vote will take place on March 10, but the membership deadline is February 16 at 5:00pm EST! It's $10 to become a member and you only need to meet the following criteria to purchase:

•           Be at least 14 years old

•           Be a permanent resident or citizen of Canada

•           Reside in the province of Ontario

 Seriously, that's it! But you need to purchase a membership by February 16 at 5:00pm EST  in order to have a pro-life voice in the leadership race! The more pro-lifers who read this email, purchase or renew their membership, and let us know as soon as possible, the fewer follow-up calls and texts our volunteers need to make. This guarantees more pro-life membership sales! 

 For life and for the win,

 Scott Hayward, Co-Founder           www.itstartsrightnow.ca
