Fr. Pavone Backs Upcoming Nationwide “Wash for Life” Events


National Pro-Life Religious Council


For Immediate Release

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today urged support for Wash for Life, a national movement of young people organizing car washes across the country to raise money for local crisis pregnancy centers.  Thus far, at least 175 groups in 37 states will be participating in the first car wash event on Saturday morning, September 16, as a means to provide tangible support for pregnant women.

“Wash for Life is a tremendous concept and a great act of service on behalf of women and their unborn babies,” said Fr. Pavone.  “I urge everyone to go to, see where the car washes will be held, and go get their cars cleaned on September 16.  It’s a great way to encourage and provide practical help to those who help others and to foster the culture of life.”

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
