Prolife Ministry

Sacred Heart Pro Life Ministry works to promote the culture of life in our parish and our community.  The ministry promotes respect for life from conception until natural death. Information is available on all life issues: pregnancy and support for mothers and families, abortion, post abortion healing, natural family planning, cloning, stem cell research, euthanasia, and end of life issues. 

Activities include:  regular prayer for life, peaceful prayer at local abortion clinic, volunteer and fundraising support for local crisis pregnancy centers including Birth Choice of the Desert, Refuge Pregnancy Center & Mama's House, education on legislative issues that promote respect for life at all stages, and networking with community prolife groups.
