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 society, through its laws and social institutions, must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence.
U.S. Catholic Bishops, Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities, November 2001
Respect Life Ministry promotes community awareness of pro-life issues (such as the death penalty, euthanasia, assisted suicide, abortion, adoption and Natural Family Planning) through prayer, peaceful demonstration, education, and fundraising.
The annual Pennies from Heaven drive takes place on a Sunday during October when our nation's Catholics are called to renew their personal commitment to defend all human life, especially the most vulnerable members of the human family. Procceds from this drive support local pro-life agencies.
For more information on pro-life issues, please visit the U.S. Conference Of Catholic Bishops website and the California Catholic Conference website.
