Pro-Life Resources & Information

We hope the following Pro-Life resources are helpful to you, or that the Lord uses each of us to pass these resources on to those in our lives who might need them.

Petition Drive

October 26/27
At all Masses the last weekend of October, we will be collecting signatures to petition state legislators to pass a state constitutional amendment that will reverse the court’s ruling that supports the right to abortion. Because of this court decision, all of Kansas’ pro-life laws are in danger of being eliminated. There’s only one way to fix it: amend the Kansas Constitution.

Please join your support with Archbishop Naumann and Catholics across the state of Kansas to make our voices heard on this important issue.

Check out this article from The Leaven: "Petition Drive seeks to reverse Kansas Supreme Court Ruling"

Won't be at Prince of Peace that weekend? Please take a moment to sign the online petition on the Kansas Catholic Conference website.
