The Respect Life Group keeps us apprised of Pro-Life issues and needs, recruits volunteers, and tries to enable each parishioner to be actively Pro-Life. The Group exists to foster respect for all human life from conception to natural death; abortion plays a central role because it is a direct attack against the most vulnerable and defenseless members of the human family. The policy and practice of allowing over one and a half million abortions annually cannot but diminish respect for life in other areas.

Praise the Lord! Our Prayers have been Answered.
The Family Planning Services of Lorain County chemical abortion clinic in North Ridgeville has closed. This is a wonderful answer to the prayers of our parish over the last five years since the clinic opened.
If you know someone considering abortion, God has given you the opportunity to be a lifesaver!
Rescue Kits are available in the literature rack in the church foyer. In the Rescue Kit are various brochures and other information that can equip you to help someone you know decide in favor of life. Pick up a Rescue Kit, look through the various materials, and prayerfully decide which information will be most helpful. Pray like crazy, and then go tolk to the person you know considering abortion. Through you, God can work a miracle!
