Respect Life Committee

Mission Statement:

Respect Life works to instill respect for all human life and to bring a conversion of heart and mind for all to be open to God’s special gift of life. 

 It is our mission to foster in our parish community an awareness of the dignity and sanctity of all human life, from conception to natural death.  We are dedicated to observing and promoting the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church on all life issues, including abortion, euthanasia, infanticide, assisted suicide and the reproductive technology industry.
