The St. Raphael ProLife Committee passionately believes in these words of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI:

"We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
 Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
 Each of is willed.
 Each of is loved.
 Each of is necessary."

May God bless us all as we strive to Stand for Life at all times and in all circumstances.

Respect Life

The Respect Life Apostolate (RLA) promotes the Catholic Church’s teachings on respect for and legal protection of every human life from conception to natural death by coordinating educational, spiritual, pastoral, and public policy advocacy efforts with particular focus on those issues in the culture that threaten life - abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, and unethical advances in scientific technology.
