Respect Life Ministry
Respect Life committee believe every life is precious, unborn to natural death. As Missionary Disciples we have a deep appreciation for the sanctity of human life through prayer, education and the organization of opportunities to give witness to the Gospel of Life.
- Inviting all parishioners, into the knowledge of why we should Respect life from the unborn to natural death.
- Since our state is still an abortion state and we are not a state who allows assisted suicide our main goals deal with Pro-Life issues.
- We strive to raise awareness with our church community on the importance of understanding what abortion truly is and supplying alternatives.
