Respect Life Ministry
e-newsletter | November 30, 2021
Dear Pro-Life Friend,
In the midst of our busyness, let us take a moment to reflect upon the gifts the Lord bestows upon us so graciously.

Here at Respect Life Ministry, we're thankful for the:

  • 22,000 Catholic school students and families who took part in the Archdiocesan-wide school Baby Bottle Drive and educational campaign for Respect Life month;
  • 7,219 visits so far this year to our life-affirming Pregnancy Help Centers from
  • 2,199 unique clients whom we had the honor of serving and empowering to choose life for their babies;
  • 500 people who took part in the National Congreso Pro Vida last month;
  • and 108 Parish Representatives who so faithfully collaborate with our office to spread the ministry.

The Lord has truly blessed this ministry, as He has each one of us. And surely among the greatest of His blessings is the gift of one's own life-- in it's earthly dimension, but even more so in our capacity for eternal life in Christ.

So let's make thanksgiving our constant prayer as we stand in awe of such a gift-- the hope of sharing in the very Life of God.

I pray you and your family had a Happy Thanksgiving, and may the Lord grant you many graces and blessings this Advent season.
For Life,
Rebecca
