Respect Life


The Respect Life Committee represents the parish’s efforts to promote, support, and defend the most fundamental of the Catholic Church’s teachings in social justice regarding the protection of the dignity and sanctity of human life at all stages of existence, from the moment of conception to natural death.

"The Gospel of Life Compendium" is a condensed version of the landmark pro-life encyclical. This thorough summary makes Pope St. John Paul II’s prophetic writing more concise and easier to understand for those looking to deepen their understanding of the Church’s beautiful teachings on the sacredness of human life. An introductory foreword provides background and context to help readers better understand The Gospel of Life. 

We seek your ideas and efforts to promote a greater sense of God’s love for all human life. Meetings are held monthly. If you are interested in this life-giving mission, please contact the church office at 410-531-6040.
