Urgent Request! Please Read:

Dear Friend,

We would like to present you with an urgent request regarding a special opportunity that requires immediate action!

Antigonish Right to Life was established in 1981 as an educational pro-life organization dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception to natural death. Two years later the society opened its doors on College Street and, in 1990, we moved to our present location on Main Street.

At this location we have operated a bookstore, thrift store and centre for educational activities while promoting human dignity. The bookstore offers a variety of publications, religious books and specialty items for sale while the thrift store offers used clothing and household items at a modest cost to help those in need. Though the Antigonish Right to Life operates the only centre of its kind in Canada, several other centres in the Maritimes have developed from the prompting and example of our centre.

 For the last 30 years we have been present to serve those with physical and/or emotional needs. With increasing frequency we are encountering people coming into the centre who are experiencing a variety of difficulties.

Twenty-six years after moving to Main Street the society believes the time has come to expand our presence to further our mission of protecting the sanctity of life and those in need. At present, an opportunity has arisen to move into a larger, more spacious location via the purchase of our own property. This chance to move to a more appropriate space will not last long!

To make this a reality we need your help. After prayerful reflection and careful consideration, the society has determined to move forward in furthering our mission by raising a minimum of $500,000 by August 15 to purchase this property.

We would like to invite you to participate and reflect on how you could help us with our cause. We want your help in doing what we do better, to reach more people and examine new approaches in promoting life.

Perhaps you are able to make a significant contribution to this effort with a one-time donation or ongoing support. Maybe you know someone else who is sympathetic to and willing to support our cause. As a registered charity we would be able to offer an income tax receipt for any donations received.

What has occurred the past three decades has been tremendous and has only occurred through God’s grace and the generosity of our volunteers and benefactors who have always been able to help those who have come forward in need.

For those who have supported these efforts in the past we thank you. For those who may be considering helping for the first time we ask you to consider a donation and to participate in our efforts. Should you like to learn more about Antigonish Right to Life, our efforts and our campaign, we would welcome the opportunity to meet with you.

Please keep our efforts in your prayers.

Respectfully yours,


Ramona MacDonnell
