Respect Life Ministry

Our Mission: To inspire reverence for human life at all stages, from conception to natural death. We complement all parish efforts through prayer, education, and action.

“The Gospel of Life is at the heart of Jesus’ message. Lovingly received day after day by the Church it is to be preached with dauntless fidelity as “good news” to the people of every age and culture.” – Pope St. John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, March 25, 1995.
