The Respect Life Committee is dedicated to advocating the dignity and sacredness of all human life from the moment of conception until natural death. Our intent is to promote a culture of life that respects and protects all life, particularly the most vulnerable and marginalized among us: the unborn, the elderly, the disabled, the poor, the homeless, the incarcerated, and the terminally ill. We seek to affirm the dignity of life through four main activities:
- Public Information—Educating our community about pro-life issues and the needs of those we seek to serve;
- Pastoral Care—Providing both spiritual and material support for those in need;
Public Policy—Providing opportunities to our parish community to express their support of the dignity of life to public officials;
- Prayer and Worship—Participating in the sacramental life of the Church to provide spiritual support and to insure the continued grounding of our efforts in the Gospel values.
The Committee typically meets once a month from the fall to the spring. We encourage you to join the committee and become an apostle for the Gospel of Life.
