From an e-mail from a reader
I am sad to report that Fr. Whelan, head of Priests for Life Canada, passed away Sunday Feb. 24, 2008. He suffered a massive heart attack in the sacristy of a church in the St. Catharines area. He was there for a Lenten Mission.
I do not have additional details and the website for the Priests for Life Canada has no info.
Please pray for the repose of his soul.
