Current Birthright Volunteers
Regis Flaherty recently retired as General Manager of the National Institute for Newman Studies. Previously, he was Director of the Gilmary Retreat Center. He is a bestselling author and continues to work as a retreat director and speaker. With Libbie, his wife of 44 years, he has four children, eight grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
He has been involved in pro-life activities for many years, beginning in college at Duquesne University, where in 1974 he was involved in the first pro-life rally and prayer service on campus. He joined Birthright of Pittsburgh as a volunteer in April of this year. He is helping with a variety of activities including the Red Rose Campaign.
When asked why he decided to volunteer at Birthright, Regis responded, “I wanted to work with an organization that helps both mother and child in very personal and tangible ways, and Birthright has been doing that for years. Since starting here, I have been so impressed by the generosity, care, and dedication exhibited by Regina and all the volunteers. I just hope that I can contribute to the good work that helps so many women and children.”
