The Diocese of San Diego Office for Social Ministry affirms and fosters human life, dignity and rights, promotes justice and peace, and serves as a resource to parishes in responding to people of every culture and status, especially those who are marginalized economically or socially.
In conjunction with the Diocese, St. Charles Culture of Life Team works in the parish level to promoting the same mission statement.
During Pro-Life Awareness Month (usually in October), the Team sets up an information table at the West Patio of the Church to provide Catholic brochures and leaflets on life, family, and marriage issues for parishioners to share to their families and friends.
