The Culture of Life Ministry reminds us that—from birth to natural death—“human life is a precious gift from God.”

“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you.” – St. Jeremiah 1:5


Through interaction and collaboration with the Pastor and other parish ministries, the St. Julian Eymard Culture of Life Ministry seeks to place a focus on the sanctity and innate dignity of all human life, from conception until natural death.


To work toward the conversion of people of conscience to a culture of life through prayer and worship, outreach, education and community involvement. To advocate prayer as the foundation of all we do in defense of human life.
