About Us

Mission Statement

Every human person is created out of love by God, made in His image and likeness, and is destined to live forever. Out of this awareness of the profound reverence due to every person and a great desire to draw each one closer to Christ, we provide programs that prepare and enrich engaged and married couples, educate, support and strengthen families, build and promote a culture of life, and provide healing and comfort to those struggling with loss, grief, or brokenness.

How We Serve

The Family Life Respect Life Office (FLRL) serves the people of God in our archdiocese by helping them to discover and live out their lives as persons made in the image and likeness of God (imago Dei).

  • We do this by offering programs that prepare and enrich engaged and married couples, educate, support and strengthen families, build and promote a culture of life, and provide healing and comfort to those struggling with loss or grief.
  • Recognizing our accountability to God and each other, we carry out our mission in the spirit of good stewardship, grateful for the time, talent and treasure we have been given.
  • We strive to approach our work with the sacrificial love and mercy of Christ, passing on to the culture the gift of love God has lavished upon each of us.
