PRO-LIFE MINISTRY

Gabriel Project Image

Mission Statement:

The St. Ann Parish Pro-Life Ministry is committed to ensuring that the parish and community recognize and respect the inherent dignity and right to life of every human being, from conception to natural death. To achieve this goal, the Ministry serves as a chapter of the Great Lakes Gabriel Project, a statewide network of men and women who reach out to local women with unplanned pregnancies to help them choose life and avoid abortion. The Ministry also promotes and participates in community-based Pro-Life efforts, such as the Life Chain and 40 Days for Life vigil. Within the parish, the Ministry sponsors an annual Breakfast for Life and occasionally hosts guest speakers. Prayer and education are also a part of the Ministry’s work.
