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.
What's Happening in Our Ministry
THANK YOU to everyone who has a “Heart for Moms in Need” and contributed to our collection for Mother’s Refuge and St Mary’s Home for Mother’s. Your gifts made Mother’s Day a little extra special for moms who are struggling and don’t have the support that we may take for granted. A special THANK YOU to the Knights of Columbus for their support of life! The Knights gave a generous donation to purchase some larger items, including car seats, changing tables, bassinets, and a stroller for Mother's Refuge and St. Mary's Home for Mothers. We are grateful to St. Elizabeth Knights, Msgr. Peter R. Kennedy Council #14163, for their continued support of the Respect Life Ministry and its efforts to provide care for mothers facing crisis pregnancies.
Mother’s Refuge is a local maternity home that shelters and supports homeless pregnant and parenting young women by providing comprehensive services that empower them to make successful life decisions for themselves and their babies. St. Mary’s Home for Mothers (SMHM) is another maternity home that offers women in crisis pregnancies a dignified place to live, raise their babies, and create paths to productive, independent lives. SMHM allows an expectant mother with older children to bring those children to the home with her.
