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.

Come join Respect Life monthly meetings-- scheduled with Gabriel Project -- the 3rd Sunday of every month in the church Hall.  Come to the meeting & Stay for the Breakfast.

Our Diocesan Plan for Pro-Life Activites has four major areas:

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

"40Days for Life"

40 Days for Life / Fall of 2018… a groundbreaking, coordinated international mobilization. We pray that, with God’s help, this will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in our city — and beyond. Come join us at Butano Drive in Sacramento to pray for those seeking an abortion & those working for the abortion industry.  Fall 40 Days closed on November 5th 2018.  However, you can still add your name to the online calendar (see below in blue text) and come any Friday between hours: 8:30 am to 11:30 am.
