Respect Life & Social Justice
The Respect Life & Social Justice Office assists the bishop in proclaiming the dignity of human life created in the Image of God as the basis for the fundamental human right to life; and applying our Church's social doctrine to local situations.
Walking with Moms
Pregnant and parenting moms in need are in our parishes and our neighborhoods. As Pope Francis reminds us, our parishes need to be “islands of mercy in the midst of the sea of indifference.” The Respect Life and Social Justice Office is here to help and support parishes in this effort.
