Culture of Life Studies

The Culture of Life Studies Program provides Catholic, pro-life home and classroom materials, resources, and trainings to educators, schools, and dioceses equipping them to help younger generations bring an end to abortion and other threats against human beings, preserve the sanctity of marriage, and restore the kingdom of heaven on earth.

 

Its vision is to create a world in which the institutions of sacramental marriage and family are protected and fostered; and all human beings are treated with respect, dignity, and love from the moment of creation until death.

The Culture of Life Studies Program is committed to providing resources that are consistent with the Roman Catholic Church’s teachings, including the Bible, divine revelation, and sacred tradition, as interpreted by the Magisterium. All programs and activities of the Culture of Life Studies Program are in conformity with the Magisterial teaching of the Catholic Church in union with the Holy See. Therefore, all definitions of human personhood, the family, and human sexuality must always conform to such teachings.

This series of videos was developed by Live Action (www.liveaction.org).  Live Action is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization that "exists today to shift public opinion on the killing of preborn children and defend the rights of these most vulnerable among us. Through compelling educational media, human interest storytelling, and investigative reporting, we reveal the humanity of the preborn and expose the abortion industry exploiting women for profit."

Purpose of this Event
“I have come that you may have life, and have it to the fullest…” John 10:10


To educate and inspire our 8th grade students on the dignity and sanctity of all life, from conception to natural death. To help them know and believe that God made them in His image and likeness and that their life matters! We want our 8th graders to leave this day knowing that:

  • Life is a precious gift from God
  • God loves each of them and desires a real personal relationship with them
  • There are laws and ideologies that pose threats to life in our culture.
  • As Catholics we are called to defend and protect the most vulnerable lives.
