Mary Rider

Mary Rider is a long-time Catholic Worker, war resister, death penalty opponent and pro-life activist who promotes a consistent ethic of life, her faith-based belief that all life is sacred and each human being is made in the image and likeness of God. A feminist and mother of 8, grandmother of 3, Mary and her husband, Patrick O'Neill, belong to the pacifist Catholic Worker Movement, which embraces the Corporal Works of Mercy: feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, welcoming the stranger, caring for the sick, freeing the prisoners and burying the dead. Mary embraces nonviolent direct action to abolish war and the death penalty, for immigrant and economic justice, and for alternatives to poverty and abortion. A home health social worker, Mary served as executive director of Pro-Lifers for Survival, the Seamless Garment Network and Consistent Life. She and Patrick serve as Eucharistic Ministers at WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh, N.C.
