About The Event:

After crossing paths several times at numerous conservative events, Citizens for a New Louisiana’s Executive Director, Michael Lunsford ended up seated alongside Frank Pavone at the same table at a breakfast event, where they had a quick chat about Louisiana’s strong Pro-Life movement. That was the start of an ongoing conversation that occurred across multiple events and states, eventually leading to Frank Pavone’s upcoming visit to South Louisiana. All Proceeds Benefitting Priests for Life & New Louisiana Foundation. Frank Pavone is one of the most prominent pro‐life leaders in the world. He is at the forefront of the Pro-Life movement and on September 7th, 2023, we will be honored with his presence, the sharing of his knowledge, and a look into the future of the Pro-Life movement.

About Frank Pavone:

Pro‐life Leader FRANK PAVONE is one of the most prominent pro‐life leaders in the world. Originally from New York, he was ordained a Roman Catholic priest in 1988 by Cardinal John O’Connor, and has dedicated his entire life and ministry to ending abortion. In 1993 he requested and received permission to serve as the National Director of Priests for Life, which, under his leadership, has become the largest Catholic organization focused on ending abortion. He is also the President of the National Pro‐life Religious Council, and the National Pastoral Director of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign and of Rachel’s Vineyard, the world’s largest ministry of healing after abortion. He travels throughout the country, to an average of four states every week, preaching and teaching against abortion. He broadcasts daily to hundreds of thousands of people via his television, radio and online programs. Over the past three decades, Pavone has achieved many notable pro‐life accomplishments. For example, Mother Teresa asked him to speak in India on the life issues. The Vatican appointed him to the Pontifical Academy for Life and to the Pontifical Council for the Family to help coordinate the pro‐life activities of the Catholic Church. He was present at the bedside of Terri Schiavo as she was dying and was an outspoken advocate for her life. Members of Congress have invited him to address the pro‐life caucus and to preach at the prayer service they had in the Capitol just prior to the vote on health care reform. He served on the Pro‐life and Catholic advisory boards of both of President Trump’s election Campaigns and in 2020 was National Co‐Chair of Pro‐life Voices for Trump. He currently serves on former President Trump’s National Faith Advisory Board. He received the “Proudly Pro‐life Award” by the National Right to Life Committee and numerous other pro‐life awards and honorary doctorates. He is the author of four books, Ending Abortion, Not Just Fighting It; Pro‐life Reflections for Every Day; Abolishing Abortion, and Proclaiming the Message of Life. Norma McCorvey, the “Jane Roe” of the Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade abortion decision, called Pavone “the catalyst that brought me into the Catholic Church.” His efforts have been recognized as a key factor in the reversal of Roe vs. Wade. His work has been praised by Presidents, Popes, and countless citizens. Some Church leaders, however, have tried to cancel him and in 2022 convinced Pope Francis to dismiss him from the priesthood. He continues, however, in his fulltime pro‐life leadership role with the unanimous support of the ministries he leads and his pro‐life colleagues. Meanwhile, he is working within the Church to have his priesthood fully reinstated.
