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

Attention... Go See this Movie "UNPLANNED"

In Theaters starting March 29th, 2019
