You can help cultivate Orthodox pro-life engagement through an affiliated Orthodox Christians for Life Ministry at your parish!

OCLife Parish Ministries pray for an end to abortion, educate their fellow Orthodox Christians on life issues, and serve their parish and community to help end abortion and create a culture of life.

Like other ministries of our churches which care for weak and vulnerable populations, OCLife Parish Ministries seek to support women at-risk for abortion and their children by collaborating with local organizations to strengthen their impact.
