Rose For Life Link 

Each weekend, the rose is donated by a family in the parish in honor of a special loved one. The rose symbolizes the Church’s respect for life in all of its stages and the hope that one day soon abortion will be a thing of the past.

The mission of the Respect Life Ministry of St. James is to transform society into a Culture of Life where every human being is valued and protected from the moment of conception until natural death. We seek to convert hearts and minds on all life issues, including: abortion, post-abortion aftermath, chastity, capital punishment, artificial contraception, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research and human cloning, and vaccines developed from the tissue of aborted babies.
