Office for Human Life

Created in the image and likeness of God from the very beginning of time, human life begins its journey on Earth from conception until natural death.

Who We Are & How We Serve - The Human Life office educates and inspires people throughout the diocese to be stewards of the gift of life that God has given us. Through prayer, education, and pastoral care, we uphold and promote the consistent ethic of life from conception until natural death. This ethic of life is the thread that unites all efforts to uphold the dignity of life at all stages of existence.
