We are looking for talented, passionate members for our Respect Life committee: photographers, writers, organizers, social media and graphic designers. If you would like to help in any of these areas, please fill in your information below so we can contact you. Thank you for helping to be the voice of the voiceless!
“Every child who, rather than being born, is condemned unjustly to being aborted, bears the face of Jesus Christ, bears the face of the Lord, who even before he was born, and then just after birth, experienced the world’s rejection. And every elderly person…even if he is ill or at the end of his days, bears the face of Christ. They cannot be discarded, as the ‘culture of waste’ suggests!” – Pope Francis
St. Mary Respect Life has been active in St Mary Parish for over 30 years. During this time we have posted billboards, sponsored buses to the Washington, D.C. March for Life, raised money for Pro-Life charities, brought in Pro-Life speakers, and passed out Pro-Life material in order to keep Life issues out in the public eye.
Mission: To act as a lay apostolate in proclaiming the Gospel of Life and in working toward implementation of the USCCB "Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities".
Who We Are:
We are a lay apostolate group dedicated to the idea that all human life is created in God’s image. We strongly believe that life begins at conception and continues until natural death.
Through our many projects we try to raise awareness of the sanctity of human life and of loving alternatives to abortion. Our goal is to change hearts and minds, and ultimately see the 14,000 annual abortions in the State of Connecticut eliminated.
What We Do:
Our committee has several teams which support projects and events throughout the year. They include a Billboard and Media campaign, support for Project Rachel, Birthright of Greater Danbury, March for Life, speakers/presentations, memorials to the unborn, and Life Chain.
The Committee also works to interface, regarding areas of respect for life, with other organizations and ministries, including the Knights of Columbus and Life Teen, and other Respect Life organizations throughout Fairfield County.
We meet in the school library at 7:00PM on the first Thursday of every month. All are welcome to join us.
