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.
Attend the National Right to Life Convention in Charleston, SC, July 5-6, featuring headline speaker Ashley Bratcher (the actress who played Abby Johnson in the movie). This is the largest, most informative educational event that takes place every year, and this time it's happening right in our backyard!
NRL conventions are a great place to gain the knowledge and skills to successfully advocate for the pro-life cause, whether it be in the state legislature, in the classroom, in the community, or through different media platforms. The two-day event hosts several general sessions featuring leading experts on the pressing pro-life issues of the day. Packed around the general sessions are 48 workshops where participants can delve more deeply into specific topics. Running concurrently with the convention is the National Teens for Life Convention with workshops geared specifically for teens, our
youngest pro-life leaders. For details about the convention and how to register, go to www.nrlconvention.com .
As Women's History Month comes to a close, consider this contrast. According to Saint John Paul II, "society certainly owes much to the genius of women" (1995, Letter to Women). Yet, Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers profit from the killing of more than 27 million baby girls every year, who will never get a chance to share their feminine genius with the world. Who pro-woman?
