40 Days For Life 2022 – Thank You!
The Respect Life Committee would like to extend a sincere “thank you” to the parishioners that
participated in the 40 Days for Life on Wednesday Oct. 5th and Saturday Oct. 22nd. Also, a big thank you for all
those that prayed for it! The great news during this campaign, there were five babies saved from abortion
and five mothers saved from regret and sorrow.
Thank you greatly to those that donated items for babies and their mothers to Foundations of Life. Your
kindness and generosity are greatly appreciated and a lot of mothers and babies are being helped because of
you. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
This group of ministries works to promote respect of all life from womb to tomb through prayer, peaceful witness, education and advocacy. One of the tenants of our Catholic faith is the protection of the defenseless and those without a voice and these ministries promote that protection. This ministry is part of a nationwide effort to protect, nurture and sustain human life. This ministry includes a four-part plan issues by the Catholic Bishops of the United States, which include:
- Education- In the Catholic community and the public square.
- Care and Services- For women with problems related to pregnancy; for those disabled, sick, or dying and their families; and for those who have been involved in abortion.
- Advocacy- for public policies that protect the lives of unborn children and those vulnerable to pressure to end their own lives.
- Prayer- that the culture of death will be replaced with a culture of life and love.
