Pro-Life Work

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you." - Jeremiah 1:5


RAVENS RESPECT LIFE

The primary mission of these volunteers is to raise the consciousness of the community to the evils of abortion and to encourage students to get involved in working for pro-life legislation and the culture of life. Ravens Respect Life (RRL) is Benedictine College's premiere pro-life organization. Contact Ravens Respect Life for more information.


JUSTICE FOR ALL - JFA

Join us as Justice For All (JFA), a pro-life organization, comes to our campus to teach students how to discus pro-life issues and take it from debate to dialogue. Then, travel to the campus of a state university to live what you’ve learned by talking to students about the right to life issues. Contact Ravens Respect Life for more information.

Each January, members of the BC community make a pro-life pilgrimage to Washington, D.C., to join thousands of people in defending the right to life. Join 200 other Ravens on this trek across the country for life! Contact Ravens Respect Life for more information.


VIGIL FOR LIFE

Each January, members of the BC community join in solidarity with the unborn and those on the March for Life to pray and fast over a 24-hour period for an end to abortion and the culture of death.  Groups and individuals can sign up for one-hour adoration slots throughout the day and night.
