Respect Life

                                        

 

Our Bishop David Ricken has outlined a three-facet respect life initiative for us:

  • Pray and fast.
  • Learn to love people by freeing them from their ignorance.
  • Defend life with no fear, hesitation or compromise.


Pope Benedict XVI,  in his address in Hyde Park, London, Sept. 18, 2010 said:

"Each of us has a mission, each of us is called to change the world, to work for a culture of life, a culture forged by love and respect for the dignity of each human person."


Our Green Bay Diocese website has an excellent Respect Life Resources page. http://www.gbdioc.org/respect-life-main-page.html

 


Our parish Respect Life group does a number of things including:

  • Provides Respect Life and related materials at the entrances to our church
  • Has a booth at the Waupaca County Fair
  • Holds a Carnation flower sale in conjuction with Mother's Day to raise money for their resouirces and fair booth rental.
  • Collecting items for the Waupaca Pregnancy Center (cradle at the entrance to our church)

Parish contacts are Kathy Wagner 867-3068 and Germaine Schoenhofen (920) 915-8387
