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.

Our Diocesan Plan for Pro-Life Activities calls upon al the resources of the Diocese ---  its people, services and institutions to pursue this effort ---

in four major areas:

  • Education & Formation
  • Pastoral Care
  • Prayer & Worship
  • Advocacy
