Bishop R. Daniel Conlon's Statement
 

The Respect Life Ministry offers advocacy, education, and outreach in pro-life areas; in particular, in the areas of chastity, abortion and euthanasia. Most of the parishes have a pro-life coordinator, and through them, many in our diocese are involved in educational programs, in caring for those facing pregnancy in difficult life situations and other challenges, and in working for appropriate laws to protect the lives of the unborn, the elderly, and other lives at risk.

The Respect Life Office endorses the following pregnancy resource centers located in the Diocese of Joliet: Birthright (Joliet)Waterleaf Women's Center (Aurora), Caring Network, NFP (Naperville, West Chicago, Glen Ellyn, Darien, Wood Dale, and Elmhurst).  We support a prayerful, respectful, and lawful witness at local abortion clinics. The Diocese sponsors Rachel's Vineyard Retreats for post-abortive women and men two times per year.  Call 1-866-99-4-GIVE for more information.
