Respect Life Novena Prayer

The Power of Prayer:  we invite all you to join fellow parishioners in a Novena for Life.  Commit to praying our Parish's Respect Life prayer anytime at your home, throughout your day for NINE DAYS.

Heavenly Father, the beauty and dignity of human life was the crowning of your creation. Help us to realize the sacredness of all human life and to respect it from the moment of conception until the last moment at death. Give us courage to speak with truth and love and with conviction in defense of life. Help us to extend the gentle hand of mercy and forgiveness to those who do not reverence your gift of life. To all, grant pardon for the times we have failed to be grateful for your precious gift of life or to respect it in others. We ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.
