Every human person is precious in the eyes of God and has received the precious gift of life from God. Given that knowledge each person is due respect and appreciation for that life. The Pro-Life Committee works to teach respect for all human life from conception to natural death and also to teach ways to protect and nurture life at every stage. Some of the activities the committee sponsors or attends to promote this respect and awareness for life are:
Pro-Life Art Contest, EPS baby shower, Spiritual Adoption, 40 Days for Life, Fund Raising to send youth to the March for Life in Washington D.C., Living Rosary, Mothers Day Ad, Celebration of Life dinner, Life Chain Sunday, Trunk or Treat, NUFL Garage Sale, EPS Breakfast, Archbishop's mass and rosary and Bishop's Pro-Life banquet and conference.
