The Rose for Life Ministry places a single red rose near the altar of the church and the parish center at all weekend liturgies. 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. Each weekend, the rose is donated by a family in the parish in honor of a special loved one.

This is an opportunity for volunteers to promote a respect for life in a small but meaningful way by contributing to the awareness of this vital moral concern for our church and for our nation.

Volunteers pick up the roses at Sylvia’s Flowers on Saturdays and place them in the church and Parish Center. We coordinate with our volunteers by phone as needed. Only 30-40 minutes of your time on assigned Saturday mornings is needed.
