Respect Life

As a gift from God, every human life is sacred from conception to natural death and must be respected and protected at every stage and in every condition. The fundamental right to life leads Catholics to actively work for a world of greater respect for human life and greater commitment to justice and peace.

To achieve this goal, the Respect Life Committee of Our Lady of Good Counsel parish employs ongoing education, prayer, policy, and advocacy efforts to mobilize the Catholic community on issues of life, justice, and peace. In this way, our community of OLGC celebrates the gift of human life and witnesses to the Gospel of Christ and the teachings of His Church. Please contact Deacon Tom Kolon at 856-235-0181.
