October is Respect Life Month

Posted on October 02, 2018 in: News

As Catholics, we believe that every life is cherished and chosen, from the moment of conception until natural death. Every person is made in the image and likeness of God — the pre-born, those struggling with illness or a disability, those who are reaching the twilight of their life — and so each and every person has inherent dignity. We also believe that our baptism calls us to be the Light of Christ to others.
