As Catholics, we believe that all life is precious from the moment of conception until natural death. Our Parish Respect Life Committee gathers as a resource for its members to learn and understand what the Church teaches about all life issues. The goal to is support and encourage people to become involved with these issues as a way of proclaiming the Gospel to all nations. If you would like to be part of our committee, please contact Jenna McAndrew, Director of Parish Services: JMcAndrew@mdpparish.com.
