Respect Life

This ministry is dedicated to the doctrine of our faith that all life is sacred and must be protected and defended from conception until natural death.  Our primary focus is the defense of the unborn children who are not protected under the laws of our nation or our commonwealth.  We participate in regular prayer vigils in front of Planned Parenthood in hopes of bringing the message that all lives matter, born and unborn, and deserve protection.

We support the efforts of the Pregnancy Centers of Central Virginia which offers resources to young women in crisis pregnancies.  We have participated in the annual 40 Days for Life campaign since 2007, as well as the annual Walk for Life.  Many parishioners attend the annual March for Life in DC.
