In 2000, the Archdiocese of Anchorage, Alaska took a leap of faith and founded a Pro-Life program in Magadan, Russia. They had no idea how to fund the program, but after asking parishioners to help any woman wanting to save her child from abortion, the Lord answered their prayers. The “Mission to Magadan,” has helped over 46 women give birth to 52 children and helped them from the pregnancy throughout the lives of the moms, and the children.

Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love but to use violence to get what they want.”

Pro-Life Ministry

The Pro-Life Mission

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.” Jeremiah 1:5

Fr. Michael runs the program and often has missionaries come to support and minister to the mothers. The Mission to Magadan believes every life is sacred, every life is desired by God, and every life is created for eternity. They now turn to Catholic World Mission to expand their program, and help more women through pregnancy and childrearing.
