Respect Life Apostolate

"It is impossible to further the common good without acknowledging and defending the right to life, upon which all the other inalienable rights of individuals are founded and from which they develop" (Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae). 

Welcome to the Respect Life Apostolate of the Diocese of Lincoln, assisting parishes and schools in implementing the Bishops' Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities through prayer and worship, providing pro-life education and support for clergy and parish pro-life coordinators, pastoral care resources for those affected by abortion, alternatives to abortion, information on Natural Family Planning, chastity education, as well as information onand pro-life legal initiatives.

Please join us in building a Culture of Life and combating all attacks on human dignity, particularly those attacks involving the evils of contraception, abortion, euthanasia, and immoral biomedical research. We are always striving to expand our outreach and change hearts.
