Respect Life Committee
The Respect Life Committee of St. Barnabas Catholic Church is guided by the Respect Life Program of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Charlotte. We are here to support and collaborate on all matters incorporated in the Respect Life field from conception to death. The best way to show Christ’s love is to value human life.
We need to constantly educate ourselves on pro-life issues and work for the dignity of “Life” as a parish, a community, a Diocese, a state and as a nation. We pray that we will be given the strength to proclaim and defend the sanctity of all human life. May God bless our efforts.
