What does it mean to be Pro-Life? It's more than just thinking abortion or physician-assisted suicide are bad ideas. It's a firm belief in protecting the dignity of people from conception to natural death.
Pro-Life At Our Parish
Our Pro-Life Committee works to raise awareness of pro-life issues at our parish and promote parish involvement in pro-life events. Please join their group on Flocknote to learn more about upcoming activities.
Pro-Life Rosary and Breakfast
Parishioners gather following daily Mass, which begins at 8:00 am, on the first Wednesday of each month to pray the pro-life rosary. Participants then go out to eat together at a local restaurant.
Respect Life Month
October is Respect Life Month and we participate by collecting various items and donations for our local organizations that help women who decide to keep their babies. These include Alternatives Pregnancy Center, Birthline, and Mary's Choice.
40 Days for Life
40 Days for Life is a national, community-based campaign of prayer and fasting that takes place in the fall and during Lent. Our parish usually commits to praying outside Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains two days during the campaign. Please check the counter in the gathering Space for sign-ups. You can learn more about the Denver campaign here.
40 Days for Life is September 27th through November 5th, 2017. During this time (24 hours a day) a prayer vigil will be held in the public right-of-way outside of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (E. 38th Ave. and Pontiac St.). St. Joseph parishioners will be going to the vigil on October 10th and 20th around noon. There is a sign-up form in the Gathering Area of the Church.
