Mission Statement: Respect Life is a ministry that attempts to bring awareness within the parish to the clash between the culture of life and the culture of death.
Current Activities: A summary of the activities that Respect Life conducts on a yearly basis includes: The Rosary Crusade for Life; Pro-life flyers in bulletins; Life Chain in Beaufort; White Cross Display; An annual Rally for Life near the Thrift Shop; Stand Up for Life Rally in Columbia; March for Life in Washington DC; An annual Spiritual Adoption Program; and Prayer Vigils at Savannah Abortion Clinics.
The 27th annual Beaufort Life Chain will be held on Sunday, October 28, 2018
Please mark your calendars now. Location is TBD.
I am sure you will agree that our Christian principles are being challenged more and more each year. So, it is very important that we come together as Christians to take a public stand against the murdering of innocent babies! Since 1973, when it became legal for mothers to kill their own children in the womb, over 60 million babies have been slaughtered at the hands of abortionists.
Please come out and pray with us on October 28. Registration will begin at 1:30 pm. We will be on the sidewalk in silent prayer 2:30 – 3:30.

The First Month: Your spiritually adopted baby has been quite busy during the past month! Already she is 10,000 bigger than at conception.
Your baby has developed the foundations of her brain, spinal cord, and nervous system, all by the 20th day; right after that her heart began to beat, pumping blood through her own circulatory system, with a blood type that might be different from her mother's.
In spite of these milestones, your baby is entering the time frame during which she is most in danger of being aborted. Please pray that the Lord of Life would move the heart of her mother to give her the most precious gift of all -- the gift of life.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.
From Friday, August 3rd 2018 to Friday, September 28th, 2018, the weekly Call to Prayer will be adapted as a nine-week Novena for the Legal Protection of Human Life. The upcoming Supreme Court vacancy provides us with yet another occasion requiring focused prayer. The U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops does not support or oppose the confirmation of any presidential nominee. However, given this historic moment, the U. S. Bishops are urging all people of good will to pray that a change in the U. S. Supreme Court may move our nation closet to the day when every human being is protected in law and welcomed in life.
