Respect Life

Respect Life » committee members are involved in the general education of parishioners about the sanctity of life from conception through death.

At its most basic level, the pro-life message is this: An unborn child is a human person whose life has value and deserves to be protected by our society.

Carrying this message throughout our parish and beyond is the mission of the Respect Life Ministry at St. Elizabeth. If you are interested in joining us, please contact the parish office to get you in touch with our ministry. 

In 2023, the RLM will continue to fulfill its mission to pray, educate, and act. We invite the entire parish to join us as we: 

  • Pray a quarterly rosary for life
  • Educate the parish through our weekly Life Corner entries and chronicles of our spiritually adopted babies
  • Support local mother's homes through our annual spring donation drive and service projects.

Watch the bulletin and your email for ways to get involved.

Thank you for continuing to pray for your Spiritually Adopted baby: Jesus, I love you very much. I beg you to protect the preborn baby I have spiritually adopted.
