One of the important Catholic occasions each year is the Catholic Pro-Life Committee’s (CPLC) Bishop’s Dinner to be held April 18th at the Irving Convention Center. While the evening offers entertainment and fellowship, it provides an opportunity to respond to Pope Francis’ call to prepare for the Year of Mercy by responding to the Gospel mandate to reach out to the poor, the imprisoned, the immigrants, the homeless, the elderly and the unborn…
The CPLC is one among our Catholic organizations that are dedicated to the protection of the most vulnerable in our community, the marginalized, the elderly, the infirm and the unborn and supports our bishops’ call for the abolition of the Death Penalty.
For more than two decades, the efforts of the CPLC have rescued 7,800 unborn children whose mothers were on their way to getting an abortion while also offering support for expectant mothers, training young people in pro-life education, and bringing the mercy of Christ to parents who suffer in the aftermath of an abortion.
Your support of the work of the CPLC and Gospel works of mercy through your attendance at the Bishop’s Dinner will help to prepare yourself and the Catholic community for a fruitful and compassionate observance of the Year of Mercy.
I look forward to sharing the evening with you.
