Baby Bottle Campaign:

The Respect Life Ministry is sponsoring a baby bottle campaign during October. We are passing out baby bottles after all the Masses this weekend. We invite you to take the baby bottle home and fill it with loose change , money, or checks. Return the baby bottle with money to church the last weekend of October. Money raised will be donated to our two life care centers: Tapestry Pregnancy and Family Resource Center  and St. Stephen's Life Care Center (Sagrada Familia). Please be generous with your support.

Holy Hour for Life: 

A Holy Hour for Life will be offered on Sunday, October 11th, following the 10:30 Mass, from 11:30 to 12:30. It is a special time to pray before the Blessed Sacrament, asking for God's divine help to protect life from the moment of conception through and including natural death. This includes our respect for life that proclaims that all life is sacred.
