Respect Life Ministry


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.


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.

 

UPCOMING EVENTS:

 

BABY BOTTLE CAMPAIGN


Please pick up a baby bottle at the church entrances on July 26-27 and fill it with loose change for A Woman's Concern, Pregnancy Health Center, 48 Camp Street, Hyannis, and return it to the church by August 11.  A Woman's Concern is a life-saving, life-changing ministry for women and couples facing an unplanned pregnancy.  AWC is funded only by the sacrificial giving of the community.

BUDDY WALK BY THE SEA


Come join the BUDDY WALK BY THE SEA on Sunday, July 27, at Marine Park on Scranton Avenue in Falmouth.  Sponsored by the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress, the event starts at 9:00 AM with registration and a light breakfast.  The one hour, 1.2 mile walk will “step out” at 10:00 AM. Post-walk refreshments will be available, as well as the opportunity to participate in an auction/raffle.  For information on registration and/or donating, please call Betty or Bill Kelley at 508-477-8417. 


  

CAPE COD’S PREGNANCY RESOURCE CENTER


A Woman’s Concern, 48 Camp St., Hyannis, provides intervention to women and men in an unplanned pregnancy, prepares mothers and couples for parenting and aids in restoring those suffering the after effects of abortion. 

 

ROSARY FOR LIFE


The first Friday of each month, prior to the 8:30 AM Mass, the Sorrowful Mysteries of the rosary are prayed and include pro-life meditations.  Wherever you are, please consider joining this meaningful way to be involved in the pro-life movement.

DID YOU KNOW?


That Massachusetts still sells the Choose Life License Plates?  Funds generated from this specialty license plate will be distributed to not-for-profit agencies within Massachusetts that support the positive choice of Life, Adoption and Safe Haven for unwanted pregnancies and newborns.

MEETINGS


A cordial invitation is extended to anyone who is interested in attending a meeting and/or joining this Ministry.  Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month in classroom C after the 8:30 AM Mass.  Informative round-table discussions include  how to pro-actively participate in supporting all life issues.  For further information, please contact Claire Twitchell, Chairperson or Secretary-Treasurer Betty Kelley, through the Parish Office.
