Pope Saint John Paul the Great repeatedly taught us that we need to transform our culture by the light of the Gospel.
Every aspect of our lives needs to be purified by the love and truth of Jesus Christ, spoken and lived through His Church. As Christians, and especially as Catholics, we need to be a people of LIFE: cherishing life as sacred and striving to bring our Catholic Christian values to bear in our families and in the world.
Under the inspiration of the late Pope Saint John Paul the Great,
We also seek to strengthen marriages and families. Our efforts include prayer, educational materials (especially our monthly Email Newsletter), outreach projects and social activities.
"Some people may think it's time for a truce, but we're dealing with a moral absolute. There's nothing here that allows for common ground. We're talking about a human being whose life cannot be compromised."
--Most Reverend R. Daniel Conlon, Fourth Bishop of Steubenville
