Respect Life

Respect Life PosterRespect Life –

Respect Life is a unique ministry that advocates for all life from conception until natural death. Through education and awareness we are able to use prayer, peaceful vigil and participation to witness to the dignity of all life.

We seek to touch the hearts and minds of those who are in crisis pregnancy so that they may choose life.

Goals for the Year –

Respect Life works to increase awareness of pro-life issues and inspire parishioners to get involved through prayer and participation. Respect Life also offers hope to post-abortive men and women in a loving and non-judgmental way by helping those in need find appropriate counseling and healing programs, such as Project Rachel.

Volunteer Needs –

Respect Life is a wonderful opportunity to participate in life saving work. From prayerful vigils at Planned Parenthood, to passing out prayer cards in October on Respect Life Sunday, the Annual Diaper Drive, and the annual Advent collection for mothers in need. There are many ways to be involved. Please join us in working towards the day when all life is valued as the gift God intended it to be and abortion and euthanasia are no more.
