St. Matthew > Ministries List > Stewardship & Service > Respect Life Ministry


The Respect Life Ministry focuses on increasing the awareness of the dignity and sanctity of all human life from conception to natural death.

We educate our parishioners about the moral evils of abortion, infanticide, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia and assisted suicide, and to defend and restore the Culture of LIFE through campaigns of prayer and worship.

We sponsor projects which protect and defend the unborn, the disabled, the terminally ill and the elderly.

Our activities include the annual Life Chain in October, Rosaries For Life in May, and the Diaper Drive in June which benefits Crisis Pregnancy Center in Monroe, Mira-Via and Pregnancy Resource Center.

The objectives of our committee are in accordance with the Pastoral Plan of the National Conference of U.S. Catholic Bishops. Visit
