Respect for Life

We, the members of Historic St. Patrick Roman Catholic Church stand firm in the truth that every human life, from fertilization to natural death is created by God and we hope to encourage each member so that they might grow in this truth through prayer and education.

We exhort each of you to make “Every Day: A Day Pro-Life!!”

“Every human person is created in the image and likeness of God. The conviction that human life is sacred and that each person has inherent dignity that must be respected in society lies at the heart of Catholic social teaching. Calls to advance human rights are illusions if the right to life itself is subject to attack. We believe that every human life is sacred from conception to natural death; that people are more important than things; and that the measure of every institution is whether or not it enhances the life and dignity of the human person.” (US Bishops: Faithful Citizenship – Civic Responsibility for a New Millennium, 1999).
