Crossroads exists in order to help bring about a Culture of Life and defend the right to life of all unborn children. Because any such Culture of Life must take root in the youth of our society to truly flourish, Crossroads especially looks to involve and challenge young people to actively take part in bringing it about. By looking to Jesus and Mary as role models in prayer and sacrifice, and by understanding the value of suffering, we hope to convert hearts and minds and to save lives. Mindful of this mission, Crossroads looks to the following statement made by the Church in the Catholic Catechism:
“Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person – among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.”
The mission of Crossroads is to spread the Gospel of Life and promote and inform others about the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, especially with regard to the sanctity and dignity of all human life – especially unborn children in the womb. With this in mind, Crossroads welcomes and encourages members of all faiths to participate in its activities, noting that all are charged with the duty to defend the sanctity and dignity of all human life from its very beginnings in the womb to natural death.
