Cherish Life Network - "Through moral conscience God speaks to each of us, inviting us to defend human life at all times" Pope Benedict Feb 2011 - We are all called to respond to this invitation in our own lives, whether in casual conversation or in crisis. But there are many good people within our Diocese who also respond by actively engaging in other ways in defending and protecting vulnerable human life. As a Diocese we would like to help those concerned to work together to make best use of their time, talents and energies. With this in mind we have set up a Cherish Life Network.
