American Life League (ALL) and Population Research Institute (PRI) will co-host a major international pro-family conference in June 2001 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The conference theme will be “A Celebration of the Life and Times of Father Paul Marx: Coming Together in Unity to Continue his Work” and will include presentations by numerous world-renowned speakers.
Father Paul Marx is internationally recognized as a pioneer in the pro-life movement, founding a number of pro-family organizations including Population Research Institute. In 1979, Pope John Paul II told Father Marx that he was “doing the most important work on earth.” In 1981, with assistance from ALL’s president, Judie Brown, Father Marx expanded his international pro-life work. For nearly 20 years, Father Marx traveled the globe warning people of good will about the dangers of abortion, contraception, sterilization and euthanasia. In 1991 Pope John Paul II called him “the Apostle of Life.” Father Marx is currently in residence at St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota.
“Father Marx is a pro-family hero and was instrumental in my conversion to the Faith,” said Steven Mosher, president of Population Research Institute. “We are excited about working with ALL to bring about this special conference which will highlight his life’s work and also serve to educate attendees on the vital issues facing families in the modern world.”
“When traveling around the world, the first question pro-lifers ask me is ‘How is Father Paul?’ said Judie Brown, president of ALL. “Father Marx is such a good man and we love him so much. It is just a thrill to be able to have this celebration of his life’s work.”
Plans for the conference are being finalized. To be placed on a mailing list to receive full details as soon as they are available, please contact:
