Pro-Life Committee

The pro-life ministry promotes respect for life from conception to end of natural death by educating our parish members about pro-life issues and legislation.

From the Pastor:

I want to thank our Pro-Life group and many other parish groups for their efforts in bringing life issues before us.

The way we protect life is the way we will go as a nation. The lack of respect for the unborn and the laws which violate God’s divine law need to be changed! The culture of death, the lack of respect, senseless killings, violent crimes… all of this is a result of removing Jesus from public life and a lack of morals within our homes and society.

Unfortunately this culture of death is continuing to worsen as the legislature in the State of Illinois is promoting HB 40 whose focus is to get federal funds for abortion. Let us continue to storm heaven in prayer, especially through the Rosary, and do what we can to stand up for life issues at the beginning of life, and all throughout i.e., respect for the poor, the homeless, the abused, the unjustly imprisoned, refugees and for those facing end of life issues.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Unborn, pray for us.
