Ministries

Pro-Life

Brief Summary
Sacred Heart Pro-life Ministry works to promote the culture of life in our parish community, working closely with the San Bernardino Diocesan office of Pro Life Ministries. The Ministry promotes the pro life agenda regarding abortion, death penalty, euthanasia and all life issues. The main focus, because of the great loss of life and the damage to mothers and fathers, is the abortion issue. Activities include: regular prayer, peaceful prayer at local abortion clinics, volunteer and fundraising support for our local crisis pregnancy center, Birth Choice of the Desert, referrals for post abortion healing, support for legislative action that promotes respect for life at all stages, and networking with pro life groups from other parishes in our Low Desert Vicariate.
