Archbishop Alexander Sample has appointed three women to assist in his teaching in witnessing the Gospel of Life in western Oregon.

Sarah Livingstone, respect life coordinator for Archdiocese of Portland; Carmen Gaston, director of mission advancement for the archdiocese; and Dr. Grace Jazrawi, a provider at Holy Family Catholic Clinic, will help make statements and field questions, especially if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade and states can make decisions on regulating abortion.
