"Each of us has a mission, each of us is called to change the world, to work for a culture of life, a culture forged by love and respect for the dignity of each human person."
Pope Benedict XVI, Address in Hyde Park, London, Sept. 18, 2010
The Antelope Valley Respect Life Committee is dedicated to promoting the dignity and sanctity of life, from conception to natural death through a variety of programs advocating prayer, education, pastoral care and advocacy. We meet the last Tuesday of every month with parishioners from St. Mary's Church and Father Serra Parish for prayer, planning and education in support of pro-life activities in our community. All parishioners are welcome. For more information contact Raul Moya at (661)468 6868.
