Respect Life

Did you miss our 2020 Respect Life Gathering? Listen to it here.

The Respect Life Ministry of the Sacramento Diocese seeks to help Sacramento Catholics understand, value, and live out the Catholic vision of respect life. Respect Life Ministry carries out its work in Diocesan Four-Part Plan: Formation & Education, Prayer & Worship, Pastoral Care, and Legislative Advocacy

Respect Life office chiefly addresses the issue of abortion, euthanasia, and capital punishment, it collaborates with other diocesan departments in addressing broader social justice issues. In embracing a consistent ethic of life, we are attentive to the Gospel's all-encompassing vision of Respect for Life, even as we deliberately devote efforts and attention to a more focused agenda.
