Respect Life Ministry

The Catholic Church is a Pro-Life Church. Blessed Pope John Paul II asked us to be “a people of life and a people for life” (The Gospel of Life, no.78).

From February 14th to March 25th, the Respect Life community will participate in the 40 Days for Life Campaign.  This peaceful prayer vigil will take place outside of Founders’ Women’s Health in downtown Columbus.  To volunteer for an hour (or more) prayer time slot, visit 40 Days for Life.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has selected the theme “Be Not Afraid” for Respect Life month this year.

The Respect Life Committee strives to build a culture of life, and uphold and promote the dignity of human life from the moment of conception to natural death. Please join us in upcoming pro-life events at St. John Neumann.
