Embrace Life Ministry

St. Gianna Beretta Molla
 St. Gianna Beretta Molla
The purpose of the Embrace Life Ministry is to advance the teachings of Jesus Christ and His Church and to respond to Pope John Paul II’s call for a new evangelization, bringing about a culture of life and civilization of love, thus recognizing and promoting the dignity and sanctity of human life at all stages. Through the intercession of their patron, Saint Gianna Beretta Molla, this group conducts and supports activities that uphold and follow all the teachings of the Catholic Church.

The Embrace Life Ministry meets from 7 - 8 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month.

Here is a list of some of the ministry's ongoing embrace life efforts for families:  

Prayer Campaign - Our Lady of Guadalupe statue:
Our Lady of Guadalupe, “Patroness of the Unborn," is depicted carrying the Christ child within her womb. She exhibits the profound joy brought about by an absolute confidence in God – an assurance that through God, we receive the grace and strength to rise above any seemingly insurmountable situation. 

Sign up to pray at home: Parishioners are invited to participate by volunteering to accept the parish's statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas and Protectress of the Unborn, for one month. The statue, along with a bag containing other devotional items, will be presented at the end of a Mass to be taken home to inspire prayers for a greater respect of human life from natural conception to natural death.  Sign up here!

40 Days for Life: Embrace Life Ministry participates regularly in the Indianapolis 40 Days for Life Campaign. During this time the ministry invites parishioners and families to join them in prayer for an end to abortion. Volunteers then pray at a 40 Days for Life vigil outside a nearby Planned Parenthood clinic. 40 Days for Life - Sign Up Sheet

Prayer for Life
O God, our Creator, all life is in your hands from conception until death.
Help us to cherish our children and to reverence the awesome privilege of our share in creation.
May all people live and die in dignity and love.
Bless all those who defend the rights of the unborn, the handicapped and the aged.
Enlighten and be merciful toward those who fail to love, and give them peace.
Let freedom be tempered by responsibility, integrity and morality.
