Webinar Series

Life Sunday 4life webinars are planned as a tool to mobilize the Gospel of life in a consistent fashion. The series will address various life related issues supported by factual information. This will help individuals to adopt a new life style: “ the cultural change which we are calling for demands from everyone the courage to adopt a new life-style, consisting in making practical choices-at the personal, family, social and international level-on the basis of a correct scale of values: the primacy of being over having, of the person over things” (EV 98)

Missionaries for Life Regional Trainings

Missionaries for Life To proclaim Jesus is itself to proclaim life. For Jesus is "the word of life" (1 Jn 1:1). In him "life was made manifest" (1 Jn 1:2); he himself is "the eternal life which was with the Father and was made manifest to us" (1 Jn 1:2). By the gift of the Spirit, this same life has been bestowed on us. It is in being destined to life in its fullness, to "eternal life", that every person's earthly life acquires its full meaning. The main objective of the program is to encourage and enable individuals to protect and serve for human life from conception to natural death
