The Renewal Tour

Hope and Defiance as we rebuild the culture

This October, be part of the Renewal Tour, as we bring hope and defiance to all four corners of Ireland with an exciting and essential event guaranteed to elevate and motivate pro-lifers as we seek to rebuild this broken culture.

But most of all it will bring us together how to forge a pro-life future by realising the strength of our cause, and the potential for change that lies in the enduring truth of the pro-life message. 

The Renewal Tour presents both a must-see, compelling documentary on how the 8th was lost - and a hugely important discussion of the book Patriots: The untold story of the Irish Pro-Life Movement.

It will feature superb speakers who will outline a plan to make Ireland a pro-life nation once again. 

And it will platform courageous new young pro-life leaders who are already challenging the narrative and exposing the reality that this cruel abortion regime is killing babies and harming women. 

The Covid lockdown has prevented us coming together for too long, but the amazing Rally for Life in July showed the that passion and energy for Life that drives the pro-life movement is as strong as ever. 

Be INSPIRED by speakers like Carol Nolan TD, Niamh Uí Bhriain, Peadar Tóibín TD, Vicky Wall of Every Life Counts, Mattie McGrath TD, Gianna Care's Carolyn O'Meara - and by historian and journalist Jonathon Van Maren, who is flying from Canada especially for the Renewal Tour. 

WATCH an exclusive screening of Ireland's Fall: The Abortion Deception, the acclaimed documentary from Tim Jackson. 

LEARN how writing a history of the Irish pro-life movement brought journalist and historian Jonathon Van Maren to predict that the culture can swing full circle because of the strength and determination of those who care the most.
