"The promotion of the culture of life should be the highest priority in our societies...If the right to life is not defended decisively as a condition for all other rights of the person, all other references to human rights remain deceitful and illusory."
- Pope John Paul II
The mission of our Respect Life Ministry is to promote, through word and action, a consistent ethic of human life in all its stages. Recognizing that everyone is created in God's image and is of inestimable worth, we are challenged to promote and protect the inviolable right to life of all God's children.
Our Respect Life Ministry establishes a prayer network to pray for respect of life by all, incorporates "culture of life" goals in educational ministries, including our parish school, catechism, and teen, adult, and pre-Cana programs, participates in "Rosaries for Life", publishes Respect Life information in the parish bulletin, and encourages participation in the National March for Life each January.
