Priests for Life to Launch Humanae Vitae Observance

Amarillo, TX – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, announced today that starting on July 25, Priests for Life will launch a special year-long observance leading up to the 40th anniversary of the encyclical “Humanae Vitae.”

“On July 25, 1968, Pope Paul VI proclaimed in a clear and prophetic way the demands of the Gospel regarding how we approach human life and sexuality,” said Fr. Pavone. “Thirty-nine years later, his message is even more timely and urgent to hear. The purpose of this observance is to help people hear it, starting with churchgoing Catholics.”

Priests for Life has established a special website,, though which resources will be shared for clergy and laity alike, and special events announced. The first step in taking part in these observances, Fr. Pavone explained, is quite simple: “Read the document.”

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