Board of Directors reaffirms Father Frank Pavone as National Director of Priests for Life


Priests for Life


TITUSVILLE, FL – As Priests for Life prepares to celebrate the 30th ordination anniversary of National Director Father Frank Pavone, and the 25th anniversary of his taking the helm of the pro-life organization, the Board of Directors “unanimously, unequivocally and enthusiastically” reaffirmed his leadership as the ministry settles into its new expanded headquarters in Florida.
In its resolution, the board said its members “wish to formally express our confidence in his leadership as we begin a new chapter of our ministry and prepare to address all the challenges and initiatives that lie ahead.”
Priests for Life recently completed a move from its longtime New York City headquarters to its new, larger location on Florida’s Space Coast. Father Pavone will continue his extensive travels, which often see him in four cities in a week’s time.
“I am so grateful to the board members for their reaffirmation of my leadership,” Father Pavone said. “I am looking forward to continuing to work with them and with everyone who wants to work with Priests for Life to abolish abortion.”
The full text of the resolution reads:

Dear Fr. Frank: Thanks for "putting yourself on the line" for criticism from far and wide. I have been a nurse for over 50 years, and have worked on both ends of life: birth through death, natural of course. Happy anniversary, Father. I am one of 13 children. WE loved them all. My prayers and best wishes. SRMB.
