Culture of Life Activities
This group works with the Diocese to plan and implement various activities supporting a culture of life. The Culture of Life committee brings awareness to the Parish on the sanctity of all life. There are three organizations that we support:
- Birth Choice, a pregnancy resource center that counsels women and assists with their physical and spiritual needs. We support them through annual Pennies from Heaven and Epiphany collections.
- Culture of Life Family Services is a faith-based medical clinic that is open to all. We support them through an annual Baby Bottle Drive to raise funds, since many of their clients have no insurance.
- Life Perspectives is an organization that promotes after abortion healing through an interactive website, and also has designed a Whole Life curriculum for private schools. We support them through their annual fundraiser, Life Walk.
The chair of this ministry also attends meetings at the Office for Social Ministry at the Diocesan Center.
Time Requirements:Committee meets 2-3 times a year (plus some weekend events), and members are asked to help out at the events.
