Catholic Charities works to create an awareness of the dignity of human life through supporting parish Respect Life groups, providing presentations on Respect Life issues, and publishing a bi-weekly Respect Life e-newsletter with local and national news and events. Staff also provide training to those interested in sidewalk ministry to women outside abortion clinics.
For information on starting a Respect Life group at your parish, please contact Respect Life Coordinator Peter Range at 419-244-6711, ext. 220 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For upcoming events, please visit the event calendar.
Please take a few minutes to watch this video by the USCCB regarding prayer for religious freedom in America.
