Respect Life Ministry Vision Statement

"Defending and protecting every human life - from the newly conceived embryo to the suffering elder - and everyone in between."

our mission is to affect:

Economic and cultural issues:  To develop and implement processes to facilitate support for unmet basic needs of people in our community resulting from economic and or cultural challenges.

Right to Life Issues:  To focus on the most vulnerable of society-the preborn, the disabled, and the dying.  To uphold their human dignity by education of the parish and the community, with political awareness and advocacy, with service directly to each and support to and for their caregivers.

Community Engagement Issues:  To facilitate and supplement the whole mission with emphasis on engaging and/or informing as many other parishioners as possible about the Respect Life Ministry.

Elder Issues:  To provide, upon request, companionship and assistance with daily living tasks to elder parishioners, advocating for their desire to live in Summit County with dignity as long as they wish and are capable while utilizing the civic and medical agencies available to them.
