CHRIST THE KING PARISH

Respect Life Ministry

 


MISSION STATEMENT

To promote and encourage respect for life from conception to natural death through prayer, education and pro-active support of all life issues.

Each of us is a masterpiece of God’s creation.  No matter how the world might view us or others, let us treat each person as the masterpiece that he or she is.
 

A PRAYER FOR LIFE

O Mary, Mother of the Life Within, all life we entrust to you:
The life of every expectant mother and the child within her womb;
The life of every human body, the life of every human soul;
The life of every newborn child and the life of all grown old.
You held the Lord to your own heart and drew Him so close in.
So draw us now in all our needs, O Mother of the Life Within.
