Building Bridges to a Culture of Life is a vehicle where mainly Catholic youth, dedicated to educating other youth about the value of life, can work to build a network of peers ready to defend the dignity of every life from conception to natural death. Building Bridges primarily accomplishes these goals through their annual pro-life youth conference, organized by the youth for the youth and mentored by an Adult Advisory Board. The youth of the Annual Conference planning team are faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church and ask Our Lady of Guadalupe to intercede for them in their endeavors.
Prayer of Pope John Paul II for Life:
O Mary, bright dawn of the new world, Mother of the living,
to you we entrust the cause of life:
Look down, O Mother, upon the vast numbers of babies
not allowed to be born, on the poor whose lives are
made difficult, on men and women who
are victims of brutal violence, on the elderly and
the sick who are killed by indifference or out
of misguided mercy.
Grant that all who believe in Your Son may proclaim the Gospel
of Life, with honesty and love, to the people of our time.
Obtain for them the grace to accept that
Gospel as a gift ever new, the joy
of celebrating it with gratitude throughout
their lives and the courage to bear witness to it
resolutely, in order to build, together with all people
of good will, the civilization of
truth and love, to the praise and
glory of God,
the Creator and
lover of life.
