We had a great time and pray that many hearts were touched & encouraged to support the wonderful St. John Paul II Life Center!
So very proud to be working at JPII!
Great job with the virtual Gala! Thank you for living your commitment to the protection of life, especially the most vulnerable, the unborn. God bless everyone that in some way helps and supports the JPII Life Center be a success! Kudos and well done!
Happy Feast of St. John Paul II, and thank you for the work you do! Looking forward to the benefit dinner on November 13!
Hope you can come to the St. John Paul II Life Center Gala. It should be a wonderful evening!


We have a three-fold mission:
1) Operate a pregnancy resource center to support moms and save babies
2) Offer community education to inspire a generation that protects human life
3) Provide OB/GYN care that is aligned with Catholic teaching and available to patients of any faith background through Vitae Clinic


Anyone can change! Join us in protecting the preborn and helping their moms today! πŸ’™

Today is the Feast of the Holy Innocents. πŸ‘ΌπŸΌ

On this day we remember the massacre of young children, babies, and the preborn by King Herod. This was his attempt to kill the infant Jesus. These children are regarded as the first martyrs for Christ.

The killing of life was a tragedy then and still a tragedy that continues to happen today. Let us always pray for the end to abortion, the protection of life, and for the continuous aid to moms and families.

Holy Innocents, first martyrs, pray for us and our life-saving work! πŸ’™


Merry Christmas season! Let’s remember that the God of all creation was once a preborn baby and give thanks for the unexpected pregnancy that changed the world! β„οΈπŸ’™


Merry Christmas from our JPII family to yours! May the birth of our Lord Jesus constantly inspire us of the joy new life brings and how new life can change the world! πŸŽ…πŸ½β„οΈπŸ’™

Today is the Catholic feast of the Immaculate Conception. As we anticipate the birth of our Lord, let us look to Mary as an example of faithfulness to God's will who always points us to our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Christina visited our Center believing abortion was her only choice because she was months behind on rent and facing eviction. "There's no way I can have this baby without a roof over my head", she told us.

But after seeing her baby boy on an ultrasound and learning she could receive rent assistance from us, she was determined to make things work for her child. She has now given birth to a beautiful and healthy baby boy!

Supporters like you make it possible for mothers like Christina to access sustainable resources and choose life for their babies. Learn how you can help mothers and families in need this holiday season at

What are you thankful for this year?

Maybe you're thankful to have a roof over your head. Maybe you're thankful for the food in your fridge and pantry. Maybe you're simply thankful for the resources needed to support yourself and your family.

Unfortunately, many mothers and families in Central Texas do not have access to these basic necessities. This holiday season, we need your help to make sure each mom is able to comfortably enjoy festivities with their children.

On World Orphan Day, we want to take a moment to talk about foster care.

Meet Richard and Judy Ames, a couple who serves on JPII Life Center's Board of Directors and has cared for over 70 foster babies since 1995. They shared their moving testimony of the joy, difficulty, and love that comes from being foster parents.

Highlights from our 2022 Life is Beautiful Gala! We witnessed entertaining and convicting speeches from Dr. Haywood Robinson of 40 Days for Life, along with Dr. Ben Carson and Candy Carson of American Cornerstone Institute.

Our community of 800+ attendees (a record-breaking number!) came together for an evening of building a stronger future for moms and families through expanded care and education.

Thank you to the Renaissance Austin Hotel for helping us put on such a successful program!

On Wednesday night, JPII Life Center joined UT’s University Catholic Center, where our own Abigail Borah led the session titled β€œLife After Roe: What’s Next?”.

In this talk, she shared her background in the pro-life movement and equipped students with apologetics and knowledge about the life-affirming resources available to women in Texas. The students were very receptive and eager to strengthen their pro-life advocacy! Thank you to the UCC for hosting us!

(Fun fact: Abigail and Cassie are both Texas Exes and UCC alum! 🀘🏻)


We are so excited to have Dr. Haywood Robinson as our keynote speaker at our Life is Beautiful GALA! ✨

Dr. Robinson is a Texas-based family and sports medical doctor, the Director of Medical Affairs and Education for 40 Days for Life, and an associate professor at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine. Early in their careers, Dr. Robinson and his late wife Noreen helped perform abortions until a radical faith conversion opened their eyes. Dr. Robinson has now become a champion for the preborn, sharing the shocking truth of the abortion industry from his first-hand experience.


In a post-Roe USA, let’s never stop praying for the end to abortion and walking alongside moms in need!

Check out Vitae Clinic, Inc. and Free Pregnancy Help TX for maternity and reproductive help.


Together, we can save babies and build stronger families for the future.
