Respect Life Month

October is Respect Life Month. Take some time to learn about how you can promote a respect for life. Perhaps begin with the United States Council of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) web site. Then take a look at Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL) and move on to Stop Planned Parenthood (STOPP). You will find plenty of interesting articles.

Life, what a beautiful gift from our heavenly Father, a gift to be cherished, respected and protected…..always.


Pro-Life Presentation

Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL) will offer a brief pro-life presentation on Sunday, September 18, 7:00pm at Knights of Columbus Hall, 211 First St. SE, Austin, MN. You will learn about how to help pregnant women in need, Minnesota abortion statistics, efforts to overturn our law against assisted suicide, and more. Discover how you can make a difference in protecting innocent human life. Enjoy fellowship and refreshments at this free one-hour gathering!
