Sacred Heart Dunn, NC
Right to Life
What we do:We the members of the Respect for Life Apostolate respond to the Gospel of Life, commit ourselves to prayer, education, and action in defense of life.
It is our mission to foster in our parish an awareness of the dignity and sanctity of all human life, from conception to natural death. We are dedicated to observing and promoting the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church on all life issues, including, but not limited to abortion, euthanasia, infanticide, assisted suicide and stem cell research.
When we meet:
We typically meet the First Saturday, following First Saturday morning Mass, at the Cookout restaurant in Dunn. Meeting times and locations are subject to change, so please contact one of the chairpersons to be added to our email list.
Here are some of the ways we accomplish our mission statement:
*Praying at Planned Parenthood during the 40 Days for Life Campaign
*Visiting Royal Homes in Falcon and bringing a home cooked meal and crafts to make with the expectant moms and moms with babies.
*Helping with organization and stocking of the Byrd’s Nest (a little “shop” for the moms at Royal Homes)
*Praying daily for an end to abortion
*Hosting bake sales to raise money for pregnancy support centers
*providing meals for families who have just had a baby
*hosting medical directive education events
