Who We Help

“In a time when the culture is attacking the sanctity of human life, our resolve to form the next generation in their commitment to stand up for the most vulnerable among us must grow. We must be a voice for the voiceless—challenging the world to recognize that all life is sacred from the moment of conception until natural death. With the support of the Annual Appeal, the Youth Rally and Mass for Life does this. Over 18,000 teens from 35 states, 67 dioceses, and 5 countries join in a day of prayer for the protection of all life. This is a day that participants remember for the rest of their lives. Thank you for helping to make it possible.”
