RESPECT LIFE MINISTRY Respect Life Ministry/Project Gabriel 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, 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.
