Volunteers are needed for many of our activities and some activities are appropriate for families to do together. For more information, including information about our current activities,

Our Mission

We consider the pro-life issue, namely abortion, to be our priority and are continually assessing whether we as a Christian community are living up to God’s calling in how we respond to this issue. From that assessment we make recommendations for activities/actions that support the ending of abortion. Other issues are also important and are given consideration as well, such as euthanasia, human trafficking, chastity, and birth control.

Our Objectives

  • To educate CTK parishioners about Pro-Life issues: abortion, euthanasia, human trafficking, embryonic stem cell research, chastity, and birth control.
  • To promote opportunities to actively participate in Pro-Life causes, events, and activities.
  • To support CTK parishioners who are engaged in Pro-Life activities; to draw in, empower, and encourage other parishioners to do the same.

Ways for Parishioners to Get Involved
