Welcome to the St. Andrew Respect Life page.
The mission of the St. Andrew Respect Life is to foster a respect for life through prayer, study, community, and apostolic witness. We acknowledge and promote the belief that every human life, from fertilization to natural death, is unique and created in the image of God; it is our goal to educate, encourage, and equip others to do the same. We acknowledge that it is our sacred reality to protect and defend those who cannot speak for themselves: the weak and defenseless, especially the unborn and the dying. And we acknowledge that we do so only by seeking always to grow closer to God, for it is only through Him that we can know and serve the life He has created.
Our Chosen Saint
We look to St. Gianna Molla for guidance, inspiration, and courage in all of our pro-life efforts. You can learn more about St. Gianna by clicking on her link.
"Human life is sacred because from its beginning it involves the creative action of God and it remains for ever in a special relationship with the Creator, who is its sole end. God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end: no one can under any circumstance claim for himself the right directly to destroy an innocent human being."
