Respect Life

The Respect Life Committee works under the direction of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Chicago Archdiocesan Respect Life Office to promote greater respect for the dignity and sanctity of human life in all conditions and at all stages of development from conception to a natural death. We encourage prayer, inform educate, and provide opportunities for parishioners to become witnesses to life. Special emphasis is on legislative action through a grass-roots effort at the parish level.
