Welcome to a new approach to pro-life ministry! INTO LIFE: Love Changes Everything is a free online formation program that includes 12 videos, support materials, and pastoral resources. Throughout this program, you will be introduced to the beautiful charism of the Sisters of Life, including the theological foundations and the pastoral framework they use in their ministry. You will have the opportunity to pray and reflect on what it means to live a “spirituality of life,” and also to reflect on walking with a woman through an unexpected pregnancy. This series is not only a resource for pro-life work, but for the whole scope of human relationships – because it’s ultimately about upholding each other, about listening and accompaniment, and about affirming the other in their goodness and worth. It’s about seeing and loving in truth. When we know we’re loved, we can soar!
