Clergy Involvement Opportunities
We appreciate that Clergy need to provide pastoral care for parishioners who are seeking spiritual guidance and counsel on various life topics, so we want to make Life-Affirming Ministry as easy as possible.
AFL has a library of resources that can address a variety of common life issues. If a member of your church is facing any of these issues or other unique ones, please reach out to Anglicans For Life for help and resources. As your go-to resource for help with life issues, we have compiled information, articles, statistics, curricula, and much more, so that ordained leaders can easily access help to serve their congregation with the most accurate information and resources available.
Resources by Topic
Litanies and Liturgies
In an effort to aid clergy in preparing for weekly services, AFL, with the help of Anglican pastors, priests, and bishops, have contributed litanies and liturgies you can use at your church.
Sanctity of Life Sunday
On Sanctity of Life Sunday, the Sunday closest to January 22 – the day the Supreme Court handed down the Roe v. Wade decision – the Church recognizes God’s gift of life and acknowledges the many lives lost to abortion, while renewing our commitment to protecting human life at every stage. Many churches hold a Sanctity of Life Sunday service in observance of this day. While it is typically held on a Sunday in January, it can be held at any time in the liturgical calendar.
As a supplemental resource for Sanctity of Life Sunday, AFL creates a bulletin insert every year. Bulletin inserts can be utilized throughout the year, and help educate parishioners on important life topics. To purchase yours, visit our shop’s church resource section here.
