Fr. Frank receives Dr. Paul Schenck into Catholic Church; Gospel of Life Ministries Launched

February 29, 2004

Fr. Frank Pavone is happy to announce that Dr. Paul C. Schenck, a prominent leader in the pro-life movement, has joined the staff of Priests for Life. Fr. Frank also received Paul into the Catholic Church in a ceremony held this past Sunday, February 29, at the Church of St. Roch on Staten Island, New York.

Paul brings a wealth of experience to the Priests for Life organization. He is the co-founder and Chairman of the well-known group, Faith and Action, based in Washington D.C. He is a trustee of three colleges, the author of six books, and has received many distinguished awards, including an honorary doctorate from the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts in New Hampshire. Before founding Faith and Action, Rev. Schenck was the Executive Vice President of the American Center for Law and Justice. He holds a seminary degree and has served as a pastor and Christian educator. He and his wife, Becky, have eight children!

Paul was the petitioner in the Supreme Court case Schenck vs. Pro-Choice Network (1997).

Paul has been hard at work developing Gospel of Life Ministries, a new subsidiary of Priests for Life that will focus on working closely with clergy of all faith traditions.

"For me," Paul says, "becoming a Catholic is the fulfillment of my yearning for a truly comprehensive and consistent Christianity…The Catholic Church provides a coherent foundation for an unyielding commitment to the sanctity of every human life, of marriage and of the family, and of all the seasons for life."
