Purpose: To raise awareness of all threats to the sanctity of life, especially to the unborn, to the aged, and to the infirm. As Pope Francis has said, “Even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor are masterpieces of God’s creation, made in his own image, destined to live forever, deserving of the utmost reverence and respect.”
Time Commitment: Meet once a month or more frequently when Right to Life issues are in the foreground. These may include times when pending legislation is a threat to the sanctity of life, when public demonstrations, such as the Chain for Life or March on Washington/Trenton are being organized, or when prayer services are being planned.
Qualifications: Open to anyone who has the desire to protect life.
