The primary purpose of the St. Michael Respect Life Committee is to promote the Church’s teachings on the dignity of human life, as outlined in The Gospel of Life.  We are ready to work together with our pastor to pray, educate, shape public policy, and provide concrete assistance to women in crisis pregnancies.

To “Rise Up Now!” and be a part of our Respect Life efforts, please contact Kate Friess at [email protected]

“If you desire peace in your hearts,
in your homes, and in your country,
assemble each evening to recite the Rosary.
Let not even one day pass without saying it,
no matter how burdened you may be with many cares and labors.”
-Pope Pius IX
