Respect for Life Committee
Instituted in 2001, by the USCCB, the committee's four main functions are to advocate a respect for all life from conception to natural death.
Through Pastoral Service
We celebrate life with a Pro-life rosary on the 22nd of each month before the weekday Mass (no rosary on weekends) and with a special celebration and Mass on the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade (January 22). A Respect for Life conference is held yearly in September at Powell Butte Retreat Center. Advocacy done primarily with educational videos, parish inserts, pre-election information, and running the Pro-Life booth at the Deschutes County Fair. Bimonthly meetings are held on the first Monday of the month. Our annual fundraiser is the "baby-bottle" drive each year in May.

Public information and education on life issues occurring at the beginning, during or at the end of life.
- prenatal counseling and referrals;
- post abortion healing and resources;
- care for the chronically ill, disabled or dying;
- visiting the sick inconjunction with the parish health ministries.
Public policy forums - how to change hearts, minds and ultimately the laws that foster the culture of death.
Prayer and worship devoted to stopping the public acceptance of abortion/PAS/embryonic research/cloning, etc.
