Office of Pro-Life

Advocating for the sacredness of all human life

Office of Pro-Life Ministries

This office implements the four legs of the U.S. Catholic Bishops Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Ministry through education, legislation, pastoral care, and prayer. This office advocates for the sacredness of all human life from conception until natural death, and responds to threats to life. It is our hope to build a “Culture of Life” that respects and protects all life, particularly the most vulnerable – the unborn, persons with disabilities, the elderly, and the terminally ill.

For Families in Need

St. Gianna Molla Pregnancy Outreach Center

The St. Gianna Molla Pregnancy Outreach Center serves families and life by providing material, emotional, and spiritual support to mothers, fathers, and families in need during and after pregnancy. We are dedicated to helping families in a caring and compassionate atmosphere. 

Hope After Abortion

Project Rachel

A Post-Abortion Reconciliation Program offering forgiveness, healing, and hope to anyone suffering from the effects of an abortion.

We care. Let us help you. Call our confidential hotline today at 716-847-2211.

This experience, like the Sacrament it includes, is sensitive, private and confidential. If you wish, you can be put in touch with clergy, counselor or lay minister who will confidentially discuss your needs and desires to come up with an individual plan for your journey. The Project Rachel journey to wholeness helps you cope with the past through the eyes of faith, opens you to receive forgiveness and the healing grace of God, and allows you to be at peace with yourself, your unborn child, your family, your Church, and God. Visit the official Project Rachel website.
For Mothers in Need

Mother Teresa Home

The pastoral mission of the Mother Teresa Home is to promote safety, stability, and well-being for people who have experienced or been exposed to pressure in regards to their pregnancy. The Mother Teresa Home will achieve this through providing programs that provide shelter, community service, and education referral services for all young mothers in need.
