RESPECT LIFE -- A Catholic Teaching

SCS Respect Life Family Ministry focuses on dignity of human life and the protection of all life from conception to natural death through many service projects, prayer services and conversation. Here at Saint Catherine of Sienna Parish this ministry works with others in reaching out and providing information including the Diocese of Rockville Centre and other local organizations.  A few highlights:
