Respect Life Group

Our Respect Life Group works to teach respect for all human life from conception to natural death. To serve this goal, we provide resources on pro-life topics in support of the Church’s mission to proclaim that every human life is a precious gift from God. We pursue this through prayer and worship, information and education, peaceful and prayerful witness, support of pro-life public policy, and pastoral care.

Goals of this group include:

  • Unity with the Bishop’s call to prayer, fasting and almsgiving for the protection of life from the moments of conception to natural death
  • Embracing “radical solidarity” with women facing difficult or challenging pregnancies by connecting them with local pregnancy support, parenting, and post-abortion healing
  • Participation in 40 Days for Life efforts in our Diocese, including peaceful prayer at the Planned Parenthood surgical clinic on E. Main St., Columbus and Statehouse marches and events
  • Provide information and educational resources to our parish family, so that every parishioner knows where a mother in need can find help
  • Partnering to support parish efforts in material drives to support moms in need
  • Provide information and resources on faithful end-of-life concerns
