Holy Trinity’s Respect Life Ministry Promotes a Culture of Life
From Conception Until Natural Death

We invite you to join us as we pray and provide a public witness. Each year we participate in:
- Life Chain
- 40 Days for Life

"God’s love does not distinguish between the infant in the mother’s womb or the child or the youth or the adult or the older person. In each one God sees His image and likeness. Human life is a manifestation of God and His glory."
~ Pope Benedict XVI
"...there is no element of the common good, no morally good practice, which a candidate may promote and to which a voter may be dedicated, which could justify voting for a candidate who also endorses and supports the deliberate killing of the unborn, euthanasia or the recognition of a same-sex relationship as a legal marriage. The respect for the inviolable dignity of innocent human life and for the integrity of marriage and the family are so fundamental to the common good that they cannot be subordinated to any other cause, no matter how good it may be."
~ Archbishop Raymond Burke, The Teachings of the Catholic Church, National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, May 8, 2009
"Nothing we do to defend the human person, no matter how small, is ever unfruitful or forgotten. Our actions touch other lives and move other hearts in ways we can never fully understand in this world. Don't ever underestimate the beauty and power of the witness you give in your pro-life work."
~ Archbishop Charles Chaput, Politics and the Devil: Living in a World of Unbelief, South Bend, Ind., April 8, 2011
