Respect Life Ministry
e-newsletter | January 12, 2022
Dear Pro-Life Friend,
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We're so grateful for the blessings of the past year, and full of hope for what the Lord has in store for 2022.

I hope you'll join me in recommitting to proclaiming, celebrating, and serving the Gospel of Life this year when so much is at stake.

Here are three easy ways to start the year off right and make a difference for LIFE:

1) PRAYER: The Supreme Court will decide on the Dobbs case this year and we MUST pray that Roe will finally be overturned!--> Visit 9 Days for Life and PrayforDobbs.

2) ADVOCACY: We need to be ready here in Florida to protect unborn children and their parents by passing pro-life laws--> Join us for Catholic Days at the Capitol.

3) SERVICE: Our brothers and sisters contemplating abortion need our help--> Become a Sidewalk Advocate, Pregnancy Help Center Volunteer or Donor.

Thank you for your faithfulness in praying, advocating, and serving LIFE. And please continue to pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit for Respect Life Ministry as we pray for each one of you, that the Lord may grant you health of mind, body, and spirit, and fill your heart with the love and zeal you need to courageously carry out the mission he has entrusted to YOU.

"For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."
-Jeremiah 29:11
For Life,

Pray for Dobbs
The so-called constitutional right to elective abortion is being challenged in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Supreme Court case. Join the national campaign to pray that Roe v.
