The Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities, under the guidance and direction of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities, works to teach respect for all human life from conception to natural death, and organize for its protection.

To serve this goal we:

  • Develop educational material on pro-life issues
  • conduct educational campaigns in the Church – e.g.,
  • conduct educational campaigns in the public square – radio, print, exhibit
  • circulate fact sheets and other information on critical issues
  • encourage and enable programs to meet the needs of pregnant women, children, persons with disabilities, those who are sick or dying, and all who have been involved in abortion
  • provide dioceses with pro-life liturgical suggestions in the monthly Word of Life
  • coordinate/advise on public policy efforts concerning these issues
  • assist dioceses to implement major pro-life programs
  • provide a variety of other e-subscriptions

The current Committee serves from November 2021 to November 2024 and is chaired by Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of Arlington, VA.
