Respect for Life

"We proclaim that human life is a precious gift from God; that each person who receives this gift has responsibilities toward God, self, and others; and that society, through its laws and social institutions, must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence. These beliefs flow from ordinary reason and from our faith's constant witness that 'life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception' (Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World, no. 51) a teaching that has been a constant part of the Christian message since the apostolic age."

— U.S. Conference of Catholic bishops, Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities, November 2001


Free Virtual Training Webinar by Compassionate Community Care - "Being With"

When- April 29th from 7pm–8:30pm 

CCC is a registered charity of health care professionals and volunteers who provide support to vulnerable persons and their families during times of illness and crisis. They aim to provide a complete circle of care that recognizes and respects the physical, social, psychological, and spiritual needs of those involved.

Anyone who is interested in learning more about providing outreach in their own parish community is welcome. We will be learning ways to reduce social isolation and loneliness, and to build a sense of belonging and value. We will be looking at the many facets of being human—physical, mental, social and spiritual. The Schadenberg’s will provide information about how to have meaningful conversations, and how to advocate for those in need. For our elderly, who may have unmet fears, situational depression, loss of hope, or be living in existential distress, we can learn about how to be with and care for them, and how to reduce loneliness and the fear of suffering.
