Human Life International Annual Report 2019

Mission Statement

Human Life International’s mission is to Build a Culture of Life and Civilization of Love.

We effect necessary change by providing formation to groups that have the greatest potential to influence the structures of society. HLI accomplishes this strategy by impacting the Church and the Family, as well as domestic and international governing bodies. HLI, in collaboration with local, regional, and national leaders, provides educational and financial resources to support local programs which instill a greater awareness of the assaults to human life and the family. These programs unite people to actively cultivate, build, and sustain a Culture of Life. They identify leaders and provide them with ongoing formation and mentorship, accompanying these leaders and assuring them they are not alone.

Our Target Groups and Strategy

HLI targets two specific groups: those in a transitional state – seminarians and students – and those in a permanent state – priests, religious, lay professionals, and families.

Working with those in a transitional state, whose vocation is still being determined and discerned, allows HLI to cultivate a Christian viewpoint, instilling in hearts and minds a love for Truth and the beauty of human life and its eternal destiny.

HLI forms those in transition to influence their culture and society; after all, they will become husbands, wives, parents, priests, and leaders. If formed properly, they will impact their society and its moral and religious values. If they embrace the teaching of the Church and understand the underlying bioethical issues, they will be prepared to articulate pro-life truths and defend them in the public square.

The second group, those in the permanent state, who are already living in their respective vocation and profession, are making an immediate impact upon culture and society. A priest, for example, has the potential to impact the local church, families, and society for 40-60 years. Think of how many people within this time frame he will influence! The same may be said for lay professionals, such as doctors, lawyers, teachers, professors, scientists, and so on.
