Statement Regarding Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization

“Let today’s decision be a turning point for our nation—the day we renew our commitment to uphold the inalienable rights in the Declaration of Independence and build a culture of life and civilization of love. Let us redouble our efforts to accompany mothers in need, act as peacemakers with all our fellow citizens, strengthen laws that protect innocent life, and proclaim the dignity of every human person, each of whom is made in the image of our loving God.”

USCCB Statement on the US Supreme Court Ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson


Dear Seton Catholic Community,


Every person receives their inherent dignity from our loving God and we are all called to respect and defend all life from conception to natural death. We celebrate the recent Supreme Court of the United States decision regarding the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, but this should also lead us to reflect on our commitment to the life and dignity of each and every human person, especially the most vulnerable. This means that we must work to end abortion and that we also accompany women and couples who are facing unexpected or difficult pregnancies. Seton Catholic continues to reiterate the call to prayer from our Bishops and we must stand ready to help all pregnant women in need.


St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, pray for us.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.
