This group addresses the many threats to human life from the moment of conception until natural death.  The ministry works to disseminate relevant information, peaceful protests and prayer and to participate in prayer services for 40DaysForLife in the spring and the fall.  Also coordinates parish participation in the annual March for Life and Youth Rally Mass in Washington, DC.  Information is also available about the Gabriel Network and local Pregnancy Centers that work to support pregnant women.  Contact Lisa Larsen at 301-579-6078 or or submit the online Volunteer Form and specify “Respect for Life”.

Other St. Mary’s ministries sponsor pro-life activities such as October Pro-life Rosary, Baby Shower for Life in January, Walk for Life.  Please visit our pro-life bulletin board in the church vestibule.
