Respect for Life


Respect Life


The Mary Mother of God Respect Life Ministry spreads the word that we must cherish and uphold the sanctity of life from the moment of conception to natural death.

The Mass and the Eucharist, along with the consecration to and intercession of Mary, our Blessed Mother, and of her spouse Joseph, will provide witness to God's truth and embody our Lord's command to love one another as He loves us.

The Ministry will provide leadership, encouragement, and active participation, utilizing the support of the Diocese of Metuchen's resources in Spirituality, Education, Outreach, Public Policy and Prayer.
