Respect Life

THE RESPECT LIFE COMMITTEE serves to keep the parish informed about right-to-life issues and meets as needed. Respect Life maintains a hot line for women with problem pregnancies, sponsors an annual Life Chain and provides billboard education.

We sponsor a monthly diaper collection on the third weekend for Birthright in Georgetown.  There is also a collection box located in the church narthex for monetary donations to our Respect Life committee and the diapers for Birthright. 

An annual Spiritual Adoption takes place each year in the spring.  The form is below.  We publish monthly updates on the progress of these spiritually adopted babies.  A baby shower is held in October where we collect baby items in the church narthex.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much.  I beg you to spare the life of _______________, the unborn baby that I have Spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion. 

  “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.”  (Jeremiah 1:5) 

Please pray! The babies are counting on us.
