Respect for Life

"We proclaim that human life is a precious gift from God; that each person who receives this gift has responsibilities toward God, self, and others; and that society, through its laws and social institutions, must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence. These beliefs flow from ordinary reason and from our faith's constant witness that 'life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception' (Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World, no. 51) a teaching that has been a constant part of the Christian message since the apostolic age."

— U.S. Conference of Catholic bishops, Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities, November 2001

 

October is Pro-Life Month!

Join us for one or all of the following events and keep checking back as new ones are added.

  • October is Rosary Month. - Bishop Solis invites every Catholic to say the Rosary during this month.  Intention suggestions are:  An end to abortion: A call to respect all life from its beginning to natural end.  A call to treat the poor, the immigrant, the sick with the dignity and grace given to them by God.  A call for peace in our families.  An end to war and violence.  

  • Life Chain, November 1 from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. 10600 South and State Street in, Sandy.  This is a prayerful, silent witness asking for a an end to abortion. Signs will be provided.
