Respect Life


Our mission is to promote respect for all human life, helping people to accept life as a gift from God, treasured from conception to natural death, regardless of appearance, size, level of development, environment or degree of dependency. The ministry is dedicated to the cause of life through four approaches: prayer, education, public policy and pastoral care. Issues of concern include: stem cell research, abortion, euthanasia, death penalty, natural family planning, and persons with disabilities. Individuals and groups are encouraged to participate in daily prayer and efforts such as 40 Days for Life, prayer vigils at abortion facilities and parish holy hours.
