Working to Build a Culture of Life.

“Society as a whole must respect, defend and promote the dignity of every human person, at every moment and in every condition of that person’s life.” – Pope St. John Paul II


The Catholic Pro-Life Action Network (C-PLAN) of Charlotte is a network of dedicated pro-life Catholics with a commitment to spreading a Culture of Life in our city. Over the years many Catholics in the Charlotte area have established outreach ministries to provide life-affirming alternatives to abortion. Each ministry fulfills a different need, and by collaborating together we offer HOPE to women in crisis pregnancies. Click on the links below to learn more about each ministry.
