The mission of the Office of Pro-Life Apostolate is to respect, protect, and serve life from conception to natural death through public education, pastoral care, state & national legislation, prayer, and worship.”
The Diocesan Office of Pro-Life Apostolate consists of a director appointed by the Bishop and a full time secretary. Each of the 121 parishes has a Pro-Life Coordinator who works with the pastor and is the liaison to the Pro-Life Director. The parish based Pro-Life Coordinator is the "backbone" of the diocesan ministry. The role of the pro-life coordinator is to bring the pro life activites to the forefront in the local church parish community.
The Office of Pro-Life Apostolate has recently adopted a "Policy for Use of Graphic Abortion Images" which states that the office does not promote or endorse activities with indiscriminate public use of graphic images. Please read the policy in its entirety for further rationale and details.
