Respect Life Ministry
"Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them;
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14
We believe that God the Father is the Creator, Author and Giver of all life, and that we are to love, cherish, protect and celebrate all human life from the moment of conception to the last breaths of old age.
We further believe that no one has the ‘right’ to do that which is wrong, and that it is unquestionably morally wrong to kill a baby while it is growing in its mother’s womb.
We strive to proclaim this truth through prayer, and to promote the awareness of this truth throughout the parish.
