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).

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.

“Unplanned” Movie Screening – April 7
“Unplanned” is the inspiring true story of one woman’s journey of transformation.  All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the nation, she was involved in upwards of 22,000 abortions and counseled countless women about their reproductive choices. Her passion surrounding a woman’s right to choose even led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in. Until the day she saw something that changed everything, leading Abby Johnson to join her former enemies at 40 Days For Life, and become one of the most ardent pro-life speakers in America.
St. John Neumann’s Respect Life Committee has reserved a theater at Cinemark Polaris from 1:45 – 4 pm on Sunday, April 7 for a free showing of this film.  Please RSVP through Eventbrite.  This film is Rated R.
