Respect Life

The Respect Life Ministry of St. Mark's is dedicated to sharing information and resources which can help preserve all human life. We operate under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the Committee for Pro-Life Activities of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops ( We adhere to the Church’s teaching that all human life is sacred, for it is created in the image and likeness of God.

St. Mark’s Respect Life Ministry actively supports groups that share in our mission but remains non-political and non-confrontational. 

Membership and Meetings

Our ministry can be tailored to any busy schedule! We meet 2-4x/year but do most of our work in planning committees. Committees meet on an as-needed basis according to the schedules of their members. All members are encouraged to participate in all our projects even if they can't be part of the planning committee. Our committees include Respect Life Month, Baby Bottle Drive, 40 Days for Life, Welcome Baby/Pregnancy Blessings, March for Life, Miscarriage Mass, Fellowship/Recruitment, Educational Outreach, Family Rosary, January Memorial Crosses, Rose Procession, Lenten Stations of the Cross, and more. 

Our primary means of communication is email. For more information or to join contact Emily Naugle.
