RIGHT TO LIFE MINISTRY
The Right to Life Ministry is dedicated to building a Culture of Life where all lives matter… from conception to natural death! We hope to provide, herein, information on events and resources where parishioners can get involved in protecting life!

Our Mission:
1) Promote prayer and raise awareness among parishioners in Our Lady of Peace (OLP) Parish.
2) Provide actionable programs, were parishioners can get involved in expressing their concern, interest and faith by building a “Culture of Life” within OLP.

TAKE ACTION:
Even if you are not able to directly participate, PRAY, as often as you can, for God’s blessings to ABOLISH ABORTION.

BUILDING A CHRISTIAN CULTURE OF LIFE
In the future, we will be referring you to articles and information posted on the Newark Archdiocesan website, the USCCB website, and the Vatican website or officially sanctioned websites, e.g. marchforlife.org.
