Respect Life Ministry

They will know we are Christians by our Love

Our mission is to raise awareness of pro-life issues among our parish community, to support all Life both prayerfully and materially according to our means, and to build a positive relationship and open dialogue with others on the sacredness of Life. 

We respect all life from conception to natural death.

What good is prayer to end a culture of death ?
