Dear Friends in Christ,

A Christmas Update from Michael House Pregnancy Care Centre

See "A Christmas Update from Michael House Pregnancy Care Centre" here. Below are some highlights.

Kelly's Journey

Just over a year ago, Kelly* was lost when her caregiver, her beloved grandmother, passed away at a young age. Kelly was pregnant, unsure of her future and considering abortion. After a cousin told her about Michael House, Kelly applied and moved in one week later. It was here that Kelly found the support she needed. She found hope.

Take the Gifts with Vision challenge!

Moderator Jordan Cantwell has a new challenge for this year’s Gifts with Visioncampaign. She’s hoping everyone connected with The United Church of Canada will give a Gift with Vision.
