‘Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb! How have I deserved that the mother of my Lord should come to me? The moment that the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby in my womb leapt for joy!’ Luke 1:39
Mission: We proclaim that human life is a precious gift from God; that each person who receives this gift has responsibilities toward God, self, and others; and that our society, through its laws and social institutions, must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence, most centrally, the right to life itself.
Purpose: Through growing involvement in public information and education, pastoral care, public policy, and organized opportunities for prayer and worship, we will work to bring the consistent ethic of the Culture of Life to our Church and to our society.
Emblem: The small heart inside the larger heart represents our weaker, more vulnerable brothers and sisters and the larger heart represents our presence surrounding them, protecting them, no matter how old, how young, or how weak they are. We are all united by the Cross of Christ, who redeems us in the power of His resurrection, heals us in His love, and forgives our sins in His great mercy.
