Serve and Protect: Life, Liberty, and the World

This page is aimed at those who want to actively take part in the Catholic Church's mission to serve others and protect the world - to go beyond charity and dive deeper into action.

As Christ said, "Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers and sisters, you did it for me."  (Mt. 25:40) Throughout Jesus' ministry,  he protected the marginalized of society and served others to such extent that he gave his life.  As the Lord told his followers, and as he tells those of us who have followed in the footsteps of the disciples, "Go and do likewise." (Lk. 11:37)

Protect Life, Serve the Poor, Protect Children, Serve with Justice, Protect Religious Liberty, Protect Marriage, Serve the Church, and Serve the World.
