Pro-Life Awareness

At St. Agnes, our Pro-life Awareness Team is actively engaged in cultivating a broad perspective on life.  We aim to build a culture of life that transcends any single issue.  Being pro-life shapes our overall approach toward life, not just at the earliest stages and as we near death, but along the journey.  Deeply rooted in Catholic Social Teaching, it includes everything from how we help women who feel they have nowhere to turn when they are pregnant, to what we do through public policy and in our own lives to help the most vulnerable among us, including the unborn, the poor, the immigrant, the marginalized and the elderly.

Our Pro-life Awareness Team is led by Sally Yenson, Julie Ascik, Mary Pam Hardy, and Elvira Banks.  To get involved, please email Sally at [email protected].
