Respect Life

Mission Statement

As a gift from God, every human life is sacred from conception to natural death. The life and dignity of every person must be respected and protected at every stage and in every condition. The right to life is the first and most fundamental principle of human rights that leads Catholics to actively work for a world of greater respect for human life and greater commitment to justice and peace.

The Respect Life Committee strives to:

  • Promote the establishment of a culture that respects and supports the sacredness of human life through evangelization, catechesis, pastoral outreach, works of charity and public policy formulation and awareness.
  • Educate our parish and community about a wide range of life issues such as abortion, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning, assisted suicide, euthanasia, human sexuality, contraception, natural family planning, marriage, infertility procedures and the death penalty.
  • Provide parishioners with resources that will increase their understanding of these issues and ultimately help them to embrace more fully the teachings of the Catholic Church.
  • Mobilize our faith community into prayer and action thus celebrating the gift of human life and serving as witnesses to the good news of Jesus Christ.

Meetings are 4 times/year including parishes from the Main Line and surrounding areas.  These meetings occur on Tuesdays at 7pm in the Parish Center.  All are welcome.
