RESPECT FOR LIFE MINISTRY

St. A RFL Logo.jpg

The Respect for Life Ministry  has adopted as its patron Saints The Holy Family.  Jesus, Mary and Joseph display God's plan for the gift of life.

 

We welcome your participation.  If you would like to get involved, contact Mary Pat at stambroserflutah@gmail.com.  Subscribe to Human Life Action for updates on federal legislation here.  Finally, PRAY WITH US!

The First Saturday prayer group meets in the Vaughan Center after the 9:00 AM Mass on the First Saturday of the month for prayer, service, and fellowship.

Only with prayer - prayer that storms the heavens for justice and mercy, prayer that cleanses our hearts and souls - will the culture of death that surrounds us today be replaced with a culture of life." -- Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities, U.S. Catholic Bishops

Crisis Pregnancy?  Walking with Moms in Need - Diocesan Respect for Life Commission resource

An unplanned pregnancy is a life event that can be overwhelming.  Even within a stable marriage, welcoming life into the world is an awesome responsibility.  Let us all rejoice when we learn of new life and support our community with love upon hearing such news!  The Diocese has compiled a resource list to assist couples or individuals who need more support.  To learn more about services available to couples or women in need of assistance with an unplanned pregnancy, click the link above.

Project Rachel

St. Ambrose recently created a "meal train" to assist new families when welcoming a baby.  

Have you welcomed a child into the world recently?  We would love to share in your joy and announce this arrival to our St. Ambrose community.  Click the link below to send an e-mail to the Respect for Life ministry, and include details to publish in our church bulletin.  Congratulations!
