Pro-Life and Social Concerns

Important March for Life 2018 Info:

If you plan on taking your youth group to the Youth Rally and Mass for Life before the March for Life, you must contact Mary Fran Hartigan in the Pro-Life Office by Friday, November 3rd, 2017, in order to request tickets. Tickets may only be obtained through the Diocese. There are a limited number of tickets this year as the event will only be held in one location, rather than two locations as in the past.


You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb. I praise you, because I am wonderfully made; wonderful are your works! My very self you know.
-Ps 139:13-14

The Catholic Church is Pro-Life!

The Office of Pro-Life Activities and Social Concerns promotes the mission of the Church to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ (which is the Gospel of Life). We answer God's call to love the weak as well as the strong. We are committed to upholding the social teachings of the Church through education, advocacy and strengthening the relationship among parishes and with our communities.

Join us in becoming an active, faithful citizen in
building a Culture of Life!

God has imprinted his own image and likeness on human beings...conferring upon them an incomparable dignity....Beyond the rights which one acquires by one's own work, there exist rights which do not correspond to any work performed, but which flow from one's essential dignity as a person.
St. Pope John Paul II, Centisimus annus, 11
