The Respect Life Ministry is committed to the belief that all human life, able or disabled, born or unborn, young or old, is sacred and worthy of protection. We invite all parishioners to join us in our work through prayer and participation in our annual events.
Join us in prayer: Please also join us for Eucharistic Adoration during Lent and at various pro-life Masses around the Diocese throughout the year. Prayer is the foundation of all we do, so your prayers–especially the Rosary–are what we need the most.

Respect Life Prayer
Heavenly Father, the beauty and dignity of human life was the crowning of your creation. You further ennobled that life when your Son became one with us in his incarnation. Help us to realize the sacredness of human life and to respect it from the moment of conception until the last moment at death. Give us courage to speak with truth and love and with conviction in defense of life. Help us to extend the gentle hand of mercy and forgiveness to those who do not reverence your gift of life. To all, grant pardon for the times we have failed to be grateful for your precious gift of life or to respect it in others. We ask this in Jesus' Name.

In addition, join us in our efforts to lobby state legislators at the Capitol on pro-life issues throughout the year.
