Message from the Pastoral Team of Priests for Life/Gospel of Life Ministries

September 16, 2011

Priests for Life/Gospel of Life is a family of ministries serving the pro-life movement worldwide. We are proud to be guided by the leadership of Fr. Frank Pavone and are confident in his ability not only to continue to lead our ministry family but also to resolve any misunderstandings that may exist with other leaders in the Church.

We want to assure the people who support us and the pro-life public in general that all of us continue to be at your service as we grow the ministries we represent: activating the Churches, training priests, deacons, seminarians and laity, working with lawmakers in the US and worldwide, educating and mobilizing voters, reaching minority communities, raising up prayer campaigns, activating youth, producing media broadcasts, teaching pro-life spirituality, bringing hope and healing to those who have had abortions, giving voice to the testimonies of those who have been healed from abortion, and much more.

Together, we represent the largest pro-life ministry in the Catholic Church. Recently, we created together an international association called “Gospel of Life,” given the fact that our work has expanded to dozens of countries. “Gospel of Life” includes Priests for Life and the other ministries mentioned below.

We are grateful for the immense grassroots support we enjoy and for the guidance and endorsement of the bishops around the world who are associated with our efforts and invite us into their dioceses. United with each other and the whole pro-life movement, both within and beyond the Church, we will reach the goal of ending abortion and building a culture of life.
