Respect Life Ministry

We as Catholics are called to build the culture of life to respect the sacredness of human life from conception to natural death.  Respect Life Ministry seeks to promote the sacredness of human life through awareness, action and prayer.

Meetings: The Third Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. to pray, plan events and learn more about life issues by studying church documents through discussions.
