Greg Clovis and Hugh Owen’s pro life visit to Good Counsel Network

Hugh Owen of the Kolbe Center and Greg Clovis of Human Life International take a pro life visit to Good Counsel Network in Ireland

Hugh Owen and Greg Clovis on their pro life visit Good Counsel Network Ireland

Hugh Owen of the Kolbe Center joined Greg Clovis of Family Life International for a visit to Good Counsel Network Ireland. The two men are devoted to the pro life cause, and are a testimony by their family examples. Both family men live the truth with their wives and children. Both men have been blessed by God with large families. Their Catholic pro life outlook enables them to receive all the gifts that God so dearly wants to impart to them. The Kolbe Center and Family Life International occasionally work together for the common good. Like the parts of the body of Christ working in tandem, increasing optimized bodily functionality.

Where does Greg Clovis fit into the pro life ministry equation?

Greg Clovis is the director of Human Life international UK, aka Family Life International. HLI is a world recognized Catholic pro life ministry founded by Fr Paul Marx. Mr Clovis arranges many pro life & pro family seminars in the UK. He is the father of 10 children, 4 of whom have entered religious life. For a Catholic Dad, Greg Clovis is obviously doing his maths right. He desires for all Catholics to know their faith well, which channels into a Catholic pro life ethos. This year Greg has arranged two successful conferences in London inviting international speakers such as Hugh Owen and Michael Voris. Mr. Clovis’s composite pro life approach allows for a wider audience catchment that offers something for everyone. Good Counsel Network UK attend these conferences looking to both learn from them and win over pro life volunteers.

Where does Hugh Owen fit in to the pro life ministry equation?

Hugh Owen has a very unique pro life story that runs like a potentially good Arcadia movie production. His father, Sir David Owen was the 1st ever general secretary to International Planned Parenthood. Sir David died suddenly in the 1st year of holding this position, which led his son Hugh towards the Catholic Church. Hugh Owen later noticed the link between evolutionists philosophy, and the pro-choice ideation. For this reason and more, Hugh set up a counter evolution ministry. The Kolbe Center is the counter evolution ministry that provides a platform for the spread of pro life virtues and a pro Catholic society.

Volunteer with Good Counsel Network

Good Counsel Volunteers help women face their crisis pregnancy to a happy end.

Volunteering at Good Counsel Network has its own rewards

Want a challenge? Want rewards that are literally out of this world? Yes? Then pro-life volunteering at Good Counsel Network Ireland could well be for you! The Good Counsel Network, aka The Women’s Counselling Network was set up in Dublin in 1995 with a handful of volunteers. As the success of the work became apparent over the years many more people were attracted to pro-life volunteering. Good Counsel Network became established in Ireland, the UK, Austria, Spain and Belgium.

Our mission is clear cut

Women facing crisis pregnancies can be under  tremendous pressure due to the attitudes of society, family circumstances, peer influence, financial difficulties and so on. By the time we meet them, most are suffering from abortion tunnel vision and are therefore not open to any other options. They may have family concerns giving rise to stress in relation to their pregnancy. There may be subtle pressures in work not to get pregnant for career reasons.This is what makes the work at Good Counsel Network so challenging. Together, we make make the difference, and help women in crisis pregnancies.

Are you considering volunteering?

It is great that you want to volunteer and build a broad Good Counsel Network support base. We’ve had many challenges over the years, and always managed them. Pregnant women need our support. Together we can evaluate their needs, give them material support, a friendly voice and hope for the future. We get great satisfaction when we know we have helped a mother bring her child into the world. The mother too has no regrets, as a gift of life becomes her reality.

Experienced volunteers support and train new crisis pregnancy counselors at Good counsel Network

Thinking of volunteering as a crisis pregnant counselor? When considering volunteering at a crisis pregnancy centre, doubts can often surface. Are you able and suitable? Everybody has to struggle with these initial apprehensions. But nobody expects you to be an expert volunteer from day one. Nobody imagines you will be proficient by the end of a short spell either. Crisis pregnancy counselor training takes time with some work experience. For those of you considering this voluntary service, there is experienced support always at hand. A veteran crisis pregnancy counselor is always there to step in when you need assistance. The ultimate aim of Good Counsel Network is to help crisis pregnant women get support.

The importance of crisis pregnancy counsel volunteering

Women facing a crisis pregnancy need the right information, and need it fast. They may be mulling over their situation to the point that they are not able to think straight. Protection of the unborn maybe the last thing on their mind. Very often, a crisis pregnant woman is going it alone. Her boyfriend has let her down, abnegating his responsibilities as a father. The family may not know of her pregnancy, due to fear of rejection. The employer might not have time for employees who are expecting a child. This is where our volunteers can give them invaluable assistance regarding a way forward. Good Counsel Network have some helpful suggestions.

Helpful knowledge for crisis pregnant women

Giving helpful information depends on the situation. If a crisis pregnant woman is not employed, there are a number of financial supporting programmes available. There is: (1) Supplemental Welfare allowance; (2) A medical Card, (3) Rent allowance or Mortgage Interest supplement, (4) Domestic allowance for essential parental items. If a crisis pregnant woman is employed, she has recourse to: (a) Maternity Benefit; (b) Health and Safety benefits; (c) maternity leave entitlements; and (d) unpaid leave entitlements. Advising women facing a crisis pregnancy in this way gives them positive options. A voluntary counselor can put expectant mothers in touch with a local social welfare officer. They may also contact the Maternity Benefit Section of the Department of Social Protection. These are only some of the advice you as a volunteer can impart to women facing a crisis pregnancy. There are other voluntary counselling measures, which Good Counsel will discuss in another blog post.

Crisis pregnancies can have a happy ending for both Mother & Child with Good Counsel Network

A Crisis Pregnancy does not have to end in abortion. Good Counsel Network are here to give you the natal support you need.

Good Counsel Network Ireland are now online. This is great news for unexpectedly pregnant women in Ireland. We are here to help women through their crisis pregnancy in a compassionate, non-judgemental and professional way. Women today are often sold the idea of having a free choice, yet so many make the same bad choice on the back of pressure from peers who do not have their best interests at heart. Many women choose abortion and find themselves having later regrets. They have to live the consequences and conceal this aspect of their life. Those who advocate abortion for these vulnerable women do not have to live with the choice of terminating their pregnancy. They do not have to live with future complications in reproductive health and they do not have to brood over what may have been.
