Pro Life Group


The Pro-Life Group helps to foster awareness about the sacredness of human life from conception to natural death. They organize many activities throughout the year to pray for an end to abortion, including the annual March for Life in DC and 40 Days for Life. They also raise money and collect baby items throughout the year to aid crisis pregnancy centers and recipients of the Adopt a family Christmas program.



In a first for the Diocese, a single Mass honored both Respect Life Month and Disabilities Awareness Month on Respect Life Sunday. In his homily below, Bishop Michael F. Burbidge highlights the Catholic Church’s teaching on the sanctity of all life — including those with special needs.

“Sadly, we live in a nation where the poor, the weak, the elderly, the inmate, the immigrant and persons with disabilities are not always afforded the dignity that is theirs as children of God; and it is to this world that we are sent as messengers of the Gospel of Life.”

—Bishop Burbidge



More Than 11,000 Proclaim “Life Is VERY Good!”

Thousands of teens from the Arlington Diocese and across the country gathered on January 18 and 19 at Life is VERY Good to prayerfully prepare for the March for Life.

See what it looks like when thousands of young people join together and proclaim that “Life Is VERY Good!”

“Everyone has the right to life, and it’s our duty to protect the right of life for those who are unborn to those who are near the end of their life,” said one teen. “That’s why we’re here.”
