Respect Life

The Respect Life Ministry office of the Oakland Diocese seeks to help East Bay Catholics understand, value, and live out the Catholic vision of respect for life. Respect Life Ministry carries out its work in four areas:

 

While the Respect Life office chiefly addresses the issues of abortion, euthanasia and capital punishment, it collaborates with other diocesan departments in addressing broader social justice issues. In embracing a consistent ethic of life, we are attentive to the Gospel’s all-encompassing vision of respect for life, even as we deliberately devote our efforts and attention to a more focused agenda.
