Pro Life leader from Wilkes Barre, PA, receives Our Lady of Fatima tribute at special ceremony



Mrs. Betty Caffrey, from Wilkes Barre, PA, receives an award for her nearly 40 years of pro-life activism, from TFP-America Needs Fatima at a ceremony at the Quality Inn in Wilkes Barre.


Upon receiving the Fatima statue, she said: “I only accepted to receive this award because it is being conferred to me in the name of the entire staff from the Pro-Life Center, and not on me as an individual.  They are the ones that do all the work.  I only oversee things.”


Also honored at the function was Mr. Chris Calore, vice-president of the Wilkes Barre Pro-life Center and veteran activist and devotee of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.


Mrs. Caffrey at the Crisis Pregnancy Center in Wilkes Barre shortly before the award ceremony.  It has been open and helping women in need in that city since 1973.

After the ceremony and lectures, people gathered in interesting and animated conversation. 


Above is Mr. Nelson Fragelli, former president of the largest French pro-life movement, Droite de Naitre. 

He lectured the audience about gains of the pro-life movement in Europe, and showed how these gains were directly inspired and influenced by the success of the pro-life movement in the USA.


Before he spoke, I had the pleasure of saying some words about the connections between the Fatima message and the pro-life movement in the United States.
