Diocesan Pro-Life Activities include the following:

Parish Pro-Life Contact Persons Network
The diocese maintains contact with all parishes not only through the pastor, but also through parish pro-life contact persons. Only a few parishes do not have this contact person. Usually, the contact person works with a parish pro-life committee. There is a guidebook published by the diocese, which provides suggestions for various activities including educational, spiritual and worship service, and political action. Parish contact persons contact various political leaders making pro-life views known in such areas as abortion and other pro-life issues.

Post-Abortion Support Groups
These groups provide support, assistance and counseling services to those individuals and families impacted by abortion. They are a safe place to renew, rebuild and redeem hearts broken by abortion.
