RESPECT LIFE COMMISSION

The Respect Life Commission, under the guidance and direction of the Most Reverend Randolph R. Calvo, works to help educate Catholics of our diocese on the beautiful teachings of our Church on many life issues.

Though direct assaults on life are ever-increasing, Catholics are called to reflect on their faith and then act to protect life, in all its stages from conception to natural death.

The Commission collaborates with the Life, Peace, and Justice Commission on overlapping "womb to tomb" messaging and events regarding life issues.
