Bob LaLonde: Fighting for the unborn on an international stage

Priests for Life

January 04, 2019

We continue here our series highlighting the members of the Priests for Life Family who serve on our staff and pastoral team.

Bob Lalonde moved his family from Montreal to Virginia in 1984 to help the organization Human Life International expand. The most sought-after speaker at the organization’s conferences was Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life.

At these events, Bob got to know Father Frank and gave him fund-raising advice and growth strategies for Priests for Life.

“Needless to say, we got along quite well and in 1997 I became his special advisor and later an international consultant,” Bob says.

Working in pro-life is more than just a commitment for Bob.

“Pro-life work has long been a passion for me,” he says, “and especially reinforced when Pope St. John Paul II told us that, as long as we were defending the unborn, we were doing the most important work on earth.”

Bob’s work is focused on promoting and defending pro-life positions with our Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues at the United Nations, where Priests for Life has had Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council for the past 15 years.

“I assist with all Priests for Life’s international outreach initiatives across our various and far-reaching ministries,” he explains. “It’s always a joy accompanying members of our Pastoral Team, like Fr. Frank, Janet, Marie Smith, Alveda King and Dr. Theresa Burke to speaking engagements and meetings in foreign countries, and seeing them share their strategies and wisdom for others to draw upon.”

Bob and his wife, Connie, still make their home in Virginia and have three married daughters and three grandsons, with a fourth grandson due in February 2019.
