The Political Action Committee for the Civil Rights for Unborn Children is a grassroots organization that raises funds for pro-life candidates running for elected offices in the United States. Recently the organization held a breakfast at the Castle of Knights in Chicopee, Massachusetts to raise funds for its effort. Nearly 150 concerned people attended the event. They ate a fine meal and listened to a very thoughtful guest speaker, Franciscan Friar Conventual James McCurry.
Friar James McCurry is the Minister Provincial of Our Lady of the Angels Province, a jurisdiction that includes the Eastern United States and Canada. He hails originally from the Springfield-area. His province’s provincial house is in Ellicott City, Maryland.
In his talk to the breakfast attendees, Friar James remarked that we must protect the rights of the most vulnerable. And the most vulnerable members of our society are unborn children. They depend on us. Having met St. Teresa of Calcutta, Friar James also spoke about her efforts to protect the unborn.
