Join Respect Life Ministry

The Respect Life Ministry meets the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm in Conference Room 1 (next to Glynn Hall), with the exception of July and during Lent. All are welcome to join us for the hour long meeting which begins with praying the rosary and then centers on topics for upcoming events.

The San Antonio de Padua Respect Life Ministry advocates that all human life should be treated with love, respect, dignity, compassion, and mercy. Our faith teaches us that life should be protected at all stages from conception to natural death. Human life is a gift from our Lord and we are in awe of this blessing. All life, including our unborn children, those who are dying, our elderly, our children, young adults, the disabled, our neighbors, prisoners, and their victims, are human beings made in God’s likeness and with such, we share our love, just as Jesus Christ taught us to share His love. Please consider joining us at the next meeting. With any questions, please contact Mike Cushing at (714) 404-3584.
