A Respect Life Ministry brings awareness and educates our parish in all aspects of life. It promotes caring and love for human life in all stages. Members of this ministry are involved in activities that range from educating the public about respecting life issues from womb to tomb. Specific examples of respecting life include those concerning human trafficking, euthanasia, abortion, health care ethics, capital punishment, etc. Although sponsored by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Respect Life Programs are essentially comprised of the efforts of leaders throughout the Church; parish priests, staff, and volunteers; teachers and school administrators; diocesan leaders; and so many others, like you. We hope to seed such a reverence and understanding of what our role as Catholics should and could be relative to many areas concerning respecting life. Through awareness, education, and discussion, we can hopefully feel confident to be able to openly support and evangelize our catholic duty to respect life, God’s gift to all of us. Join us on the first Tuesday of every month at 11:00 a.m. in St. Martin's Hall.
