The Catholic Pro-Life Principles

By David Lambrix, Sir Knight Council 12320

Vol. 4, 2016-2017

As Catholics - We proclaim that human life is a precious gift from God; that each person who receives this gift has responsibilities toward God, self and others; and that society, through its laws and social institutions, must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence.

In his well-known pro-life encyclical, The Gospel of Life ( Evangelium vitae ), Saint John Paul II called us to be “people of life and for life.”

The Pro-Life Campaign of the Catholic Church in the United States affirms our responsibility to serve God and others by protecting the most vulnerable among us: the unborn, the elderly, and all whose lives are threatened.

The Texas Knights of Columbus – Pro-Life ACE Wings Are awarded to Knights and their Spouse for participating in five or more Public Pro-Life activities in 1 year.

Council Family Life Director presented the award to Brother Alan and Stephanie Mize with the ACE Wings.

Congratulations on behalf our the Knights of Columbus for you continued contribution to PRO-Life!
