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. 

We have many activities throughout the year. We pray a Rosary for Life every quarter and invite all the parish to join us. During October and during Lent, we join with other area churches to pray during the 40 Days for Life vigil in Overland Park. We also coordinate drives to collect needed items for local maternity homes. We hold our annual “Have a Heart for Moms in Need” drive each spring. This drive benefits Mother’s Refuge and St. Mary’s Home for Mothers. We also sponsor the Mother’s Day Carnations. 

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