Respect Life is a ministry devoted to promoting awareness, within our parish, of Life issues from conception to natural death. Prayer and a deeper relationship with our Lord for ourselves and others is at the heart of all we do. The Committee believes in the sanctity of life and promotes this awareness in a peaceful, informed manner. Simply being on the Respect Life email list and staying informed of what the parish is doing is being a part of it! Meetings are held no more than twice a year. We have multiple events, fundraisers, and volunteer opportunities throughout the year, so keep reading to find out more!
We invite you to get involved with the Respect Life Committee!
