Because LIFE IS PRECIOUS, the mission of the Respect Life Ministry is to educate and promote the dignity of life from conception to natural death. Some of the activities include:annual Shower for Life, Life Chain, Teen Life Rally, Pro-Life Crosses, Prayer Vigil and Protest at Planned Parenthood Express in Orland Park and various events during October, which is Respect Life Month. If you feel called to BE A VOICE FOR LIFE, please join us in this very important ministry.
|Rosary For Life: We meet every Saturday at 8:00 am and Wednesday at 7:00 pm in the Day Chapel of the church. We invite you to join us in prayer.
Project Gabriel is a ministry within Respect Life. Its purpose is to embrace women in need by providing immediate and practical help to women in difficult and/or crisis pregnancies. In addition, each volunteer will be embracing the spiritual adoption of the mom who asks for our help and for her pre-born baby.
Respect Life and Project Gabriel meet together on the 1st Tuesday of every month in Franciscan Hall. Please consult the bulletin for the room number.
