Cenacle for Life

The Cenacle for Life Pro-Life committee's mission is to support the spread of the culture of life throughout the parish and community through prayer, education, and service.

  • Prayer - We seek the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe with the Holy Spirit to pray for an end to abortion, to increase respect for all
  • human life, and for the conversion and healing of those involved in anti-life activities.
  • Education - We coordinate and support the activities of the Archdiocesan Respect Life Committee and disseminate information through meetings, bulletins, and announcements.
  • Service - We plan and organize a number of events that promote awareness and raise funds for pro-life organizations.
