July 5, 2024

The 4th Annual Bike For Christ, hosted by members of The Crew youth group, is happening July 27 – 28! This is a two day retreat/pilgrimage where youth aged 13-18, led by some accomplished youth leaders, will bike across scenic Eastern PEI. Throughout the weekend, participants will be treated to beautiful views, beautiful churches, the beauty of the Sacraments, the beauty of Adoration of Our Blessed Lord, and finally, the beauty of true Christian fellowship! It costs $30 to register, and any extra money raised will be donated to the Island Pregnancy Center. For more information or to register, visit our website at bikeforchrist.wordpress.com, look us up on social media, or contact Nate at 902-916-8914.

PEI Life extends a BIG thank you to all for participating in our Change4LIFE Baby Bottle Campaign

Every LIFE matters and your generosity makes this evident. Because of your support, we are currently offering a $2000 bursary for a young mom who chose LIFE for her baby and wishes to continue her post secondary education. Please spread the word and reach out to Pat for further information or see our webpage. Tel; 902-894-5473 or Education4LIFE PEI Education Bursary Program – PEI LIFE.
