Respect Life Committee thanks you for your generosity

Fifty volunteers helped deliver nearly 700 gifts to area ministries helping families in crisis.

Christ Our Hope in Every Season of Life”
~ United States Conference of Catholic Bishops 2019

The Respect Life Committee extends its gratitude to all parishioners who donated items and gift cards for our Respect Life celebration on October 13 and 14. Our parish donations help those in our area who seek help from Pregnancy Support Services, Room at the Inn and Catholic Charities. In addition to the donations, 50 volunteers from Holy Infant helped distribute gift tags, count, sort and deliver the gifts.

"The gift of your time blessed many," said Diane Gerding, Respect Life ministry coordinator. "Thanks Holy Infant community for celebrating LIFE and being the hands and feet of Christ, offering hope and encouragement to women in crisis pregnancies and families experiencing economic crisis in our area. You are awesome!"

In all, 683 gifts were delivered including $625 in food gift cards, 73 containers of baby wipes and 60 boxes of diapers (a total of 3,279 individual diapers). Shampoo, towels, bath wash, baby sleepers and socks, toothpaste and brushes as well as formula were also among the donations. 

Respect Life reading materials are available in the Atrium during the month of October. The Respect Life Program is a year-round, nationwide effort to help Catholics understand, value, and become engaged with building a culture that cherishes every human life.
