The Respect Life Committee’s mission at Holy Name of Mary parish is to promote prayer and other activities to bring an end to abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, and other crimes against human life in our society.  To find out more about what we do and what you can do to build the “culture of life” in this parish, call the office, or contact the Ministry Leader, Martha Beach.

Did you fail to rescue those who were being dragged off to death, those tottering, those near death, because you said, “We didn’t know about it”?  Surely, the Searcher of hearts knows and will repay all according to their deeds.  — Proverbs 24:11-12 NABRE
