The purpose of this site is to continue in the tradition of St. Maximilian Kolbe and use the most modern means of communication to promote the welfare of souls by preaching the faith of the Church and making Our Lady known and loved.
The site is run by the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate in the United States. Our community is a Roman Catholic religious institute of pontifical rite. Our charism is founded on the spirituality of St. Maximilian, which is both Franciscan and Marian.

Priests for Life has come to signify two distinct but related movements within the wider pro-life movement.
On one level, as described below, Priests for Life refers to a very specific effort to galvanize the clergy to preach, teach, and mobilize their people more effectively in the effort to end abortion and euthanasia.
On another level, Priests for Life represents a family of ministries that reach and enrich every aspect of the pro-life movement, for clergy and laity alike, in a wide variety of activities. This has come to pass precisely because priests are not ordained for themselves, but for the people. So in activating clergy, we are activating all the segments of the Church, the pro-life movement, and the wider society in the defense of life.
