Culture of Life - Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church

Culture of Life


Our mission within the parish is to work toward restoring respect for all human life from the moment of conception until natural death. To accomplish this task we intend to follow the guidance of our pastor and our bishop who has given us four areas of focus: Prayer, Education, Action, and Sacrifice.

If you are interested in any of these activities, would like to give suggestions, or know of a parishioner in need, please contact Fran, Culture of Life Coordinator, at

Choose Life

Virginia currently offers over 200 special license plates, from wildflowers to your favorite college football teams. Why not get a plate that expresses the value of human life? This license plate is a clear and colorful Pro-Life message that travels with you. Better still; a majority of the specialty plate fees will go to  a pregnancy center in Virginia that adheres to Heartbeat International’s Commitment of Care.
