Community Caring for Life

A Community Caring for Life (ACCL) was established for parishes in this archdiocese as a way to clearly demonstrate the reality of God’s love by providing support and care for all life from conception until natural death.

St. Charles Borromeo respects life at all stages, including those in our community who may be experiencing difficult or unexpected pregnancies.  For more information regarding the St. Charles Community Caring for Life, contact Deacon Stephen Najarian at snajarian@stchb.org.

Prayer of Love and Life
Dear Lord, through your Apostle, St. Paul, you have taught us that there are three great virtues, Faith, Hope and Love, but the greatest of all is Love.  Help me to understand that in order to love you and to love my neighbor, I must be alive.  Father, help me to value my life, and all life, and give me courage to respect, defend, and, if necessary, die to protect the right of everyone to live as you will them to.  Amen.
--Rev. James H. Murray
