The Respect Life Ministry has three main objectives:
At least twice a year, we organize prayer vigils which usually include Mass, Rosary, and Benediction for the cause of human life.
We publish information in the parish bulletins to remind and inform our parishioners that we, Catholic Christians, support and defend life. We communicate to our Federal and State Legislators via telephone and postcards our opinion regarding pending “life” legislation. On alternate years, we hold either a poster contest or an essay contest for our 7th and 8th graders.
3. Fund Raisers
On “Right to Life” Sunday, we encourage participation in the “Life Chain” and we sell roses after Mass with the proceeds going to the Life Centers, Birthright, Precious Life Shelter and Mary’s Shelter. In the spring, we have a “Pennies from Heaven” campaign with the proceeds aiding the shelter and Life Centers. If you are interested in joining us and would like to add your name to our Respect Life Roster, please call Susan Haggard at (562) 431-3462.
