ORA Loss & Living Outreach Program, a new support service being implemented in the West Island of Montreal and surroundings, is presently working on the Before I die initiative.

With the goal of promoting life, this project invites people to reflect on their own lives and share their personal aspirations in public spaces. Originating in New Orleans, more than 2000 walls have been created in over 70 countries.

Getting caught up in the day-to-day often makes it easy to forget what is important. This initiative aims at making people stop and take time to think about what really matters to them, their relationships, and their relationship with death.

It doesn’t cost anything and the hope is that passers by will find meaning and pleasure in writing on this temporary wall that has traveled throughout the city this summer.

The wall will be at St. Luke’s Parish, 106A Anselme-Lavigne, D.D.O. (Qc) H9A 1N8 on September 16 & 17, 2017.
