Respect Life Ministry


The Respect Life Ministry’s mission is to help the members of St. Joseph Parish understand and live out the teachings of the Church regarding such “life issues” as contraception, abortion, embryonic stem cell research, in vitro fertilization, human cloning, eugenics, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and medical ethics.  Some of the ways in which the ministry accomplishes its mission is through informational displays and brochures, sponsored talks, presentations and other activities.  Meetings are held at the Parish Center the first Monday of the month.  Call for more details (347-6108).
