Idaho Knights of Columbus
As Catholics we believe that abortion kills children and that the Church supports the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. While Life Programs are here to oppose abortion and support pregnant women so they can deliver a healthy baby, there is more to be considered than just abortion. We must also promote proper end of life care in accordance with the teachings of the Church.
Idaho Safe Environment
Vigilant for signs of abuse, we’re leading the Knights of Columbus’ initiative to protect children and other vulnerable persons we serve.
