Members encourage the sanctity of life at every stage of human development, through fundraisers for local pro-life groups and crisis pregnancy services.  Responsibilities include encouragement of parish-wide prayers for life and helping to raise awareness of the needs of the unborn, elderly and disabled.  An Annual Right to Life Prayer Vigil is celebrated on the first Tuesday of October on the front lawn of the Church, weather permitting.
