Sanctity of Life

By God’s grace, Catalina Lutheran Church is blessed to have a Life Team, whose leader and members have been certified by Lutherans for Life (https://www.lutheransforlife.org).  Our team has adopted the following mission statement:

The Life Team at Catalina Lutheran Church exists to equip and encourage our congregation members to be merciful and truthful voices for the sanctity of life; sharing the Good News of Christ-crucified in and around our communities, offering beauty and hope through His forgiveness and love.

We meet on a regular basis, each time beginning with a study of God’s Word and our Lutheran Confessions, which clearly proclaim the sanctity of life from conception to God’s appointed time for death.  We partner with other congregations for mutual equipping, and joint witness in the public square. Additionally, we have partnered with Family First Pregnancy Care Center and Family Diaper Bank, Oracle AZ, which serves our area through life-affirming outreach to mothers, youth and families, as well as diapers to babies, disabled and the elderly (more information on Family First may be found at http://familyfirstpcc.org).

Understanding End of Life Challenges

Abortion Pill Reversal
If you have taken the first dose of the abortion pill (Mifeprex or RU-486) and are having regrets, you may be able to get help to save your pregnancy!  Time is of the essence though, call 877-558-0333 or log on to https://www.abortionpillreversal.com.

Post Abortion
If you have lost a child through abortion, or have been part of an abortion decision, and are experiencing the pain of guilt, regret and grief, know that you are not alone and that there is forgiveness in Jesus Christ.  Lutherans for Life has developed Word of Hope, a resource to comfort you and to refer you for ongoing care. All of their services are carried out in strict confidence. You may reach the Word of Hope counsellors at 888-217-8679 and may learn more at https://www.word-of-hope.org.  Pastor is also available for individual Confession and Absolution.  Know always that we love you and are praying for you.
