Organized by the Archdiocesan Office for Life and Family, the Respect Life Sunday Mass is a celebration of the Church’s pro-life teachings.
The commitment of the Archdiocese to preserving the dignity of human life includes support for women in crisis pregnancy situations as well as healing outreach to all those suffering from post-abortion trauma.
The Office for Life and Family has released a comprehensive pregnancy care resource guide featuring life-affirming support services available throughout the Greater Philadelphia region and beyond.
The free guide provides pregnant women, fathers, new parents, and single parents with resources including pregnancy and parenting support; support for extended families; social services; miscarriage support; post-abortion healing; youth programs; housing resources; and services in Spanish. The information is broken down by state and county in southeastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.
