Our annual parish RESPECT LIFE MASS will be offered this Saturday, June 24 at 8:30 a.m. After Mass, all are invited to stay to pray the rosary or head to Kelley Hall for a light reception and a 20-30 minute video presentation on euthanasia and assisted suicide.


Why be concerned about euthanasia and assisted suicide? Six U.S. states and Washington D.C. now allow assisted suicide and proponents of assisted suicide continue to press for legalization in more states. A USCCB fact sheet on a study of the Oregon and Washington laws, which have been in place the longest, found many problems. For instance, the study found that the death toll in both states has greatly increased over the years, reporting on doctor assisted deaths is self-reporting and there is little oversight, family notice is optional, no witness is required at time of death, reasons for seeking suicide drugs include “losing autonomy” and “being a burden”. Visit www.usccb.org and search “euthanasia fact sheets” to learn more.

What is Natural Family Planning (NFP)? NFP is an umbrella term for certain methods used to achieve and avoid pregnancies. These methods are based on observation of the naturally occurring signs and symptoms of the fertile and infertile phases of a woman’s menstrual cycle. No drugs, devices, or surgical procedures are used. NFP reflects the dignity of the human person within the context of marriage and family life, promotes openness to life, and recognizes the value of the child. By respecting the love-giving and life-giving natures of marriage, NFP can enrich the bond between husband and wife. - Standards for Diocesan Natural Family Planning Ministry, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops 2010


Why Natural Family Planning? “Jesus calls us to serve others. Marriage and parenthood are ways we can immediately apply this call in our lives. NFP has led me to be more open to life, more aware of God’s design for intimacy in marriage, more dependent on Him to fulfill these plans. It has strengthened my relationship with my husband, given me personal insight and it has given our children life!” -Dawn Farias
