Pro-Life Apostolate

An Apostolate is a public activity of a baptized follower(s) of Jesus Christ on behalf of a Christian community to proclaim, serve, and realize the kingdom of God.

To the same Father and his mercy, you can, with sure hope, entrust your child. With the friendly and expert help and advice of other people… you can be among the most eloquent defenders of everyone’s right to life.
