Clergy Commitment Pledge

As an ordained priest/deacon of the Catholic Church, I acknowledge that an essential part of my ministry is to proclaim and defend the dignity of the human person.

As a sign of my commitment to this call, and in order to help strengthen my brother priests and deacons and be strengthened by them, I have become a member of the Priests for Life Association, an officially recognized Private Association of the Faithful.

As a member I pledge to pray with perseverance for a deeper respect for human life in our society, and especially for an end to abortion and euthanasia.

I pledge to clearly and consistently preach and teach about the sanctity of life to all those entrusted to my pastoral care.

I pledge to cooperate with the projects and programs of Priests for Life, to the degree that I am reasonably able to do so and within the policies set by my Ordinary.

I pledge to lend support and encouragement to other members of the Association and to the wider pro-life movement when the appropriate opportunities arise.

I am confident that the Victory of Life has already been won through the Cross and Resurrection of Christ, and that by proclaiming, celebrating, and serving the gift of Life, the Church will transform the culture of death into the Kingdom of Life.
