Our Mission

To nourish a respect for life in our parish by proclaiming that every human life is uniquely created in the image and likeness of God; that each person who receives God’s gift of life deserves respect from the time life begins at fertilization through the point of natural death; that during life we have responsibilities toward God, self and others; and that as part of our greater community we must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence.


To acknowledge the precious gift of human life which comes from God; To protect and support human life at every stage of its existence from the moment of conception to the point of natural death; To advance the teaching of the Catholic Church regarding the gift of life through education and social programs; To support the goals of the Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities, under the guidance and direction of the Committee for Pro-Life Activities of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
