We are the people of life because God, in his unconditional love, has given us the Gospel of life and by this same Gospel we have been transformed and saved… we have become a people for life and we are called to act accordingly.

– John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, #79



We as Catholics are called to build the culture of life and to respect the sacredness of human life from conception to natural death.  The Respect Life Ministry seeks to promote this teaching through awareness, action, and prayer.
