Fr. Frank Pavone Mourns Passing of Founding National Director
of Priests for Life Canada
Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National
Director of Priests for Life, commented today on the passing of Fr. Jim
Whalen, National Director of Priests for Life Canada, who died suddenly
Sunday while conducting a pro-life Parrish Mission in Thorold, Ontario.
“All who are building the Culture of Life have lost
a great leader and friend in Fr. Jim Whalen,” said Fr. Pavone.
“Fr. Jim understood that contraception, abortion, and euthanasia are
enemies of the human family, and he fought these evils with truth and
compassion. Fr. Whalen played a key role in starting the
international growth of Priests for Life. We look forward to
continuing to work with our Canadian brothers and sisters.”
Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization
dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
