The mission of the Reverence for Life Ministry is to pray, fast, and be a peaceful witness for the protection of all life from the moment of conception to that of natural death.  All life is sacred and designed by God with a mission and purpose in his or her life.  We pray that the hearts and minds of our nation can be softened and changed: to protect the baby in the womb, mothers and fathers facing an unexpected pregnancy, and to protect the elderly.  Our goal is to educate the members of our parish on God’s “Gospel of Life”.

We pray the “Rosary for Life” on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the parish.

On the 2nd Saturday of each month, our singular purpose is to peacefully pray at Waterleaf Women’s Center for any amount of time that we can between 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. across from the Abortion facility.  We pray that our presence will give hope to those mothers contemplating abortion and will soften their hearts to say “yes” to life.  Our Parish Rosary is at 10:00 a.m.
