The Respect Life Ministry of Saint Monica Church

The mission of Saint Monica Respect Life Ministry is to support the miracle of life through all its stages. With compassion and mercy, we engage in prayer, peaceful witness, education and outreach to families in need.

We invite you to attend our meetings held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month and/or sign-up for the Respect Life Ministry Flocknote group whereby you will receive meeting minutes and announcements about upcoming events. Information about most of our activities will also be posted on this webpage! Following are our plans for the 2016-2017 fiscal year. We encourage you and your family to join us in this important work.

In this Jubilee Year, let us allow God to surprise us. He never tires of casting open the doors of his heart and of repeating that he loves us and wants to share his love with us. The Church feels the urgent need to proclaim God’s mercy. Her life is authentic and credible only when she becomes a convincing herald of mercy…Pope Francis, Misericordiae Vultus, The Face of Mercy, 25
