26th Annual Bishop's Pro-Life Dinner

The 26th Annual Bishop's Pro-Life Dinner was a spectacular celebration of LIFE hosted by Bishop Edward Burns with Honorary Chairs John and Dorothy O'Dwyer, with a powerful performance by Tenth Avenue North.

Tenth Avenue NorthThanks to all who helped make this an uplifting and inspirational benefit! Whether you attended, made a donation, bought a raffle ticket, volunteered, or prayed – or all of the above – the board and staff of the CPLC are grateful to you, and the entire pro-life community of Dallas. You – and your "yes" to God's call – are the reason for our success.

Were you not able to join us? We missed you at the Dinner! But don't worry -- you didn't miss the chance to support LIFE! Please help us continue to serve the most vulnerable among us.  God bless you all for your commitment to the cause!!
