Respect for Life
Campus Ministry is active in promoting respect for life from natural birth to natural death. We do so in a manner that is consistent with the Roman Catholic Church’s ethic of life and grounded in Catholic Social Teaching and the understanding that all people are created in the image of God, and thus, entitled to human dignity. Events throughout the year help to promote human dignity through service, education, awareness and advocacy.
Although respect-for-life is a topic that tends to be associated with specific issues that sometimes can politically divide people, Respect Life at St. Edward's is an attitude and way of life. Respect for life is rooted in the belief that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society. The Pierle Scholar for Respect For Life Issues collaboratively works to sponsor and promote various events throughout the year that seek to build campus awareness for Respect for Life issues such as the death penalty, abortion, euthanasia, human trafficking, homelessness and other social issues that impede upon the ability for people to live with dignity.
The goals of the Pierle Scholar are to:
- Create spaces for conversation and discussion about what it means to respect life.
- Plan events, programs, and initiatives that educate on and promote a deeper respect for life.
- Support and promote other events, programs, and initiatives from groups on- and off-campus.
- Self-educate on issues of respect life in the local community and beyond.
