Office of Respect Life

by DioceseofVenice | December 11, 2011 9:12 am


Respect Life Ministry is dedicated to transforming today’s culture of death into a culture of life. Pope John Paul II’s encyclical The Gospel of Life provides hope and inspiration in the promotion of respect for all life, from fertilization to natural death. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops` Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities: A Campaign in Support of Life, provides a framework for the ministry, following the Catholic tradition of prayer, study/education and action, including pastoral care and legislative advocacy. Respect Life Ministry focuses on life and death issues involving the beginning of life, end of life, capital punishment and legislative action on the parish, diocesan, state and national levels.
