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.


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
