There is a tired and untrue claim that the Catholic Church proclaims being pro-life, but that means we are only concerned with those before they are born, and not after. It is a lie that has been stated so often people believe it to be true. But is is wrong. Each week the DePorres Pages features a ministry to the “already born” consistent with the Church’s pro-life teaching.
This week we feature a report on National Public Radio, which describes a program co-sponsored by the Archdiocese of New York Catholic Charities. It is a soccer program for unaccompanied minors. You can hear the story and read it on the National Public Radio Website.
