Gabriel Chang Bong-hun took the responsibility as the president of the New Life Project Conference, and appointed the representatives of the pro-life movements and the organizations for the apostolate, such as diocesan committees for life and pro-life movements, the Catholic facilities for single mother families, the 'Korean Teen STAR' (in charge of the sex education for youth), the Catholic counsel centers, Catholic Lay Apostolate Council of Korea; Catholic Women's Organization of Korea, as members of that conference in order to meet the needs of the Catholics and those who commit themselves in the field of pro-life movements and to make the network of them much closer.
