Respect Life

Respect Life

"The promotion of the culture of life should be the highest priority in our societies...If the right to life is not defended decisively as a condition for all other rights of the person, all other references to human rights remain deceitful and illusory."
St. Pope John Paul II 

  The St. Thomas More Respect Life Ministry works to instill respect for human life at all stages and to bring about a conversion of heart and mind for all to be open to God's special gift of life. A consistent ethic of life reflects the church's firm conviction of the dignity of each and every human life. Created in the image and likeness of God, each of us is unique and special. And, each of us has a responsibility to God, self and others to nurture, protect and sustain life at all stages of existence. The objectives of the St. Thomas More Respect Life Ministry are fourfold: spiritual, pastoral, educational, and advocacy.  Its efforts are in tandem with the U.S. Catholic Conference's Pro-Life Secretariat.

For more information and to volunteer with the Pro-Life ministry at St. Thomas More please contact our Ministry Leader.
