Respect Life News

The Respect Life Committee would like to thank parishioners for their participation and prayers during the Fall 40 Days for Life Campaign. 564 children (that we know of) who were scheduled to be aborted are alive today! By the grace of God, 40 days for Life has achieved a stunning track record of life-saving results: 17,233 lives saved, 107 abortion centers closed and 206 abortion workers quit. These staggering numbers would not be possible without the dedicated 40 Days for Life Community.

Live the Gospel of Life!

The following was taken from St. John Paul II's encyclical "The Gospel of Life."
Having received the gift of the Gospel of Life, we are the people of life and a people for life. It is our duty to proclaim the Gospel of Life to the world. To proclaim Jesus is to proclaim life itself. Gratitude and joy at the incomparable dignity of the human person impel us to bring the Gospel of life to the hearts of all people and make it penetrate every part of society. In every child which is born and in every person who lives or dies we see the image of God's glory. We celebrate this glory in every human being, a sign of the living God, an icon of Jesus Christ.

PURPOSE STATEMENT

Called together by Jesus Christ, who came to restore us to friendship with the Father, we continue the work of our Savior to bring salvation to all peoples through the life-giving Church He established.

MISSION STATEMENT

Inspired by the example of St. Katharine Drexel, we strive to serve the Lord by:

 

  • Making the Eucharist the source and summit of our lives

  • Building intentional community

  • Preaching the Gospel to the people of Amador County

  • Forming missionary disciples

  • Reaching out to those in need
