MISSION STATEMENT

 
To promote and encourage respect for life from conception to natural death through prayer, education and pro-active support of all life issues.    Each of us is a masterpiece of God’s creation.  No matter how the world might view us or others, let us treat each person as the masterpiece that he or she is.
 
 

A PRAYER FOR LIFE

Eternal Father, Source of life, strengthen us with your Holy Spirit to receive the abundance of life you have promised.
Open our hearts to see and desire the beauty of your plan for life and love.
Make our love generous and self-giving so that we may be blessed with joy.
Grant us great trust in your mercy.  
Forgive us for not receiving your gift of life and heal us from the effects of the culture of death. 
Instill in us and all people reverence for every human life.
Inspire and protect our efforts on behalf of those most vulnerable, especially the unborn, the sick and the elderly.
We ask this in the name of Jesus, who by His Cross makes all things new.
            Amen
