Pro-Life Information

The ICD Pro-Life Committee coordinates pro-life activities in our parish.  These activities range from prayer, education, provision of real alternatives to abortion, and promotion of public policies which protect the right to life. The committee meets on the third Thursday of each month.

Next committee meeting will be October 15th at 7pm.  All are welcome!

1) October 4th "Life Chain" Sunday, 2:00pm-3:00pm: we will be joining up at the Grace Community Church (7661 Mexico Rd) to 'stand up' and pray for preserving the sanctity of Life (we can park in their lot).

3) October 18th 2020 Respect Life Convention: the annual St Louis Archiocesan pro-life convention will be a 'virtual' event this year due to COVID.  We will be providing a "live stream" opportunity for parishioners to participate in the afternoon session of the convention, starting at 1:00pm, in the ICD Parish Hall South.

USCCB on Abortion and Catholic Social Teaching

 

From Saint John Paul II (1988, Christifideles Laici)

“Above all, the common outcry, which is justly made on behalf of human rights – for example, the right to health, to home, to work, to family, to culture – is false and illusory if the right to life, the most basic and fundamental right and the condition for all other personal rights, is not defended with maximum determination”.

 

From Saint John Paul II (1998, The Gospel of Life (Evangelium Vitae, 18)

Today, when the inviolable rights of the human person are proclaimed and the value of life publicly affirmed, the most basic human right, "the right to life, is being denied or trampled upon, especially at the more significant moments of existence: the moment of birth and the moment of death".
