Our committee’s purpose is to promote the Culture of Life through prayer, education, advocacy, and by providing material resources to local crisis pregnancy centers.
The message of the program is that “all human life, born or unborn, deserves respect and protection at every stage of its existence and in every circumstance of human living.”
The committee is focused on providing educational programs on the dignity of human life and the responsibility of society to protect all of its members. It has a high priority to engage the attention and mobilize the energies of Catholic people.
