Although we do not currently have an active Respect Life Committee at the Shrine of St. Anne, several of our parishioners continue to participate in many Respect Life activities in the Archdiocese, including the 40 Days for Life prayer vigils at Planned Parenthood and the Fill the Bottle campaign, to help the pregnancy centers. We always invite all parishioners to participate in these activities as well as the monthly prayer in the square, held in our parking lot.
Please check the bulletin for upcoming events and consider joining us in this important ministry.
