Culture of Life

What We Offer

We handle anything and everything to do with promoting a culture of life in our parish and community. We receive program guidance and inspiration from the San Diego Diocese and function as the local organizers striving to galvanize popular support for our mission. Our most successful campaign was to raise funds for the "Healing the Culture: Abortion Changes You" initiative. We raised $2,000. Other successful activities are our "40 Days of Life" vigils at local abortion clinics and soliciting signatures in favor of pro-life political initiatives. We also invite speakers to describe their own experience of living through an abortion, thereby provided our parishioners with insight to the trauma and aftereffects of abortion.

We also participate in other regional initiatives to promote a culture of life. For example: the COLFS (Culture of Life Family Services) annual fundraiser, COLFS Gala in the fall, the COLFS Family Picnic in the summer; and the Life Perspectives LifeWalk in the fall, all to raise awareness and gather support in building a culture of life in our parish and community.



Sept. 27 through Nov. 5 - 40 Days for Life, a continuous prayer vigil for 40 days in front of 4 abortion centers in San Diego County.  This is a peaceful, legal event that is occurring at the same time in hundreds of cities throughout the world, including 38 locations in California.  More than 13,000 babies have been saved during 40 Days for Life since it started in 2007.  Links to our closest locations are below. 

St. Stephen Parish Vigil day is SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2017, 7 am to 7 pm at 7340 Miramar Rd, San Diego.  Please make a commitment to life, come and spend one hour or more.  Sign up at the COL ministry tables outside masses throughout October.

San Diego

Family Planning Associates, at 7340 Miramar Road. Please pray that this clinic will close.  Their lease is coming up for renewal or termination sometime between October and February.  The former abortionist who was at this location for many years is surrendering his medical license by the end of this year, and FPA has not found a local replacement.  They are still using an abortionist from the L.A. area who drives down once a week.
