Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry

“Human trafficking is an open wound on the body of contemporary society, a scourge upon the body of Christ. It is a crime against humanity.”

—Pope Francis

Thank you for visiting the new Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry section.  As part of our core beliefs and mission around supporting pro-life efforts, we are called upon to support and nourish the dignity of the whole life of those we are called to serve. 

Sadly, millions of people fall victim to human trafficking each year which attacks our individual and shared dignity.  Human trafficking exploits young and old, men and women, and neighbors and strangers in any number of ways.  This modern form of human slavery affects countless numbers, in shadow, but is often closer than we might think (or even care to imagine). 

But there is a path forward, even if our steps may seem small or few.  

We invite you to explore this section thoroughly, to learn more about this important issue, our Order’s Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry, and how you can be a part of the effort to eliminate this terrible scourge. We encourage you to participate in the Anti-Human Trafficking Training Program. Once complete, you will better understand the scope and issues concerning human trafficking and be prepared to volunteer in our Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry.

Thank you for considering this important work!
