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.
Through November 4th, you will see white crosses between the Church and the Family Center. Each cross represents 1 million babies aborted since the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision of the U. S. Supreme Court. Please continue to pray daily for the unborn, their parents, and those who promote this culture of death.

God our Creator, we give thanks to You. Who, alone, have the power to impart the breath of life as You form each of us in our mother's womb. Grant, we pray, that we, whom You have made stewards of creation, may we remain faithful to this sacred trust and constant in safeguarding the dignity of every human life.
On Thanksgiving Day please remember to thank God for the gift of life and to pray the Memorare for religious freedom.
