Meeting Times:
The 3rd Sunday of the month after the 8:30 mass in the basement of the church. Please join us.

Mission Statement: Promote the sacredness of life at all stages through education, prayer and support. Encourage parishioner involvement in life issues.

Prayer For Life:
O God, our Creator, all life is in your hands from conception until death.
Help us to cherish each person and to reverence the awesome privilege of our share in creation. May all people live and die in dignity and love, sharing and helping as we are able. Bless all those who defend the rights of the unborn, the handicapped, the victims of abuse, those on death row and the aged. Enlighten and be merciful toward those who fail to love; grant them a conversion of heart and give each person your peace.

Let freedom be tempered with responsibility, integrity, and morality.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
