The heart of the Respect Life Ministry is to foster a respect for the dignity of human life from conception to natural death through education, prayer, and sponsored activities that support human life and family in accord with the teachings of the Church.

Some of the activities include a Holy Hour in January in remembrance of the Roe v. Wade decision, a rose sale on Mother’s Day weekend as a fund raiser for Aid for Women shelter, a Holy Hour and a “Baby Shower” supply drive during the month of October, which is Respect Life Month.
