Respect Life

The purpose of Our Lady Star of the Sea’s Respect Life Ministry is to provide resources and increase within our parish community awareness of Respect Life events, activities, and issues. Please check our webpage and the bulletin regularly for information.

Because of vacations and children out of school, the summer months are a relatively quiet time for Respect Life events and activities. As soon as the 2017-2018 calendar of events or specific parish information becomes available, we will share it with you on this webpage and in the bulletin. Please watch for updates.

For an up-to-date calendar of Diocesan Respect Life events, please visit the Diocesan calendar.

To learn more about legislation and alerts, you may visit the Human Life Action Center.

Euthanasia & Assisted Suicide:
Are you or your family in need of support during a chronic, serious, or terminal illness? Learn more about Our Lady Star of the Sea’s Respite Care Ministry. If you feel as if you are called to help individuals caring for their family members long-term, please consider volunteering to provide a short respite for caretakers so they can rest, do a bit of shopping, or just have a little while to recuperate.

You are not alone in dealing with the care of someone who is terminally ill. You may want to consider hospice services, which are usually available at little or no cost.
