Respect Life

Saint John Vianney Respect for Life Committee assembles the first Wednesday of each month to plan events and discuss ways to bring about greater awareness of our call to action as Catholics to protect life at all stages.

Our goal is to educate our parish community about current respect for life issues and to provide practical assistance to protecting life, such as our Giving Tree Project and Woman Kind Baby Bottle Fundraiser.

We are always looking to increase our committee size by new members and would be open to input from our parish in what ways we can serve and protect all human life directly within our community.
