Today, Diocesan respect life directors from around the country are gathering for their annual conference.
In their pastoral plan for pro-life activities, the United States Catholic bishops call for the creation of diocesan pro-life committees, whose responsibilities include providing educational opportunities, promoting alternatives to abortion and healing after abortion, promoting pro-life prayers and liturgies, monitoring what the media are saying about abortion, reaching out to other pro-life groups, and communicating with elected officials.
The Church does not want diocesan groups to replace other groups, but rather work productively with them, and also in an ecumenical and interreligious spirit with all who want to end abortion.
I encourage you to get to know your diocesan pro-life committee, and if one does not exist, to help start it.
