Here we give you a snapshot of some of what the Priests for Life family of ministries is doing in these days. We thank you for your support and invite you to get to know us better!

Priests for Life has coordinated a coalition of dozens of national pro-life groups to launch a major pro-life project that began on March 25 the Solemnity of the Annunciation and the “Day of the Unborn Child” and ends on Christmas 2019. It is a journey through the nine months of pregnancy, with prayer, pastoral outreach, and education, so that people may learn about the development of the unborn child. See details at

We are promoting the move Unplanned and providing resources for those who want to get more involved in the pro-life movement after seeing the movie. See We are also promoting a way to find healing resources at for those seeking healing from an abortion after seeing the movie. For those who have worked in the abortion industry they can reach out to the Society of Centurions.

Fr. Frank Pavone has written several op-eds about the movie Unplanned – a story in which he has been privileged to be personally involved over the past decade. Read the op-eds here.

Recent Praise for our work

Alveda: I just wanted you to know that you are (and have been for some time) on my prayer wall. I have just signed up to receive your newsletter and signed the 2 current open letters. Also, I forwarded all that info to friends. Thank you for all you do and most of all, for the Spirit of the Lord that shines through you (I can just see .. Him through you). Thank you for serving Him.. Your Sister in Christ - much love and many prayers, - Cheryl, Tyler, TX

Dear Fr. Frank and Staff: Thank you for sending the supplies for the March for Life bus.  Our travelers especially appreciated the Prayer to End Abortion and everyone was in praise of the DVD of the funeral of three pre-born babies.  The book Proclaiming the Message of Life is wonderful!  Actually we bought a second one and gifted them to our two priests.  I can only imagine how weary you must be as you head for California.  But, your effort gives us hope, and makes us stronger in our resolve - we will never be able to repay you for that (and, yes, we just sent in a donation!!!!). You are in our daily prayers that St. Michael the Archangel may stand right beside you keeping darkness away. With love, respect and gratitude, Kathy and John 

Thank you for all the wonderful ..books and resources. I was able to give an entire deanery the wonderful resource of pro-life themes.. We appreciate the opportunity to share the good work you have done. Your resources will empower priests and ministry workers on being effective evangelizers for the Gospel of Life. – Kathy Schmugge, Director, Office of Family Life, Diocese of Charleston
