Respect Life

We Need Volunteers!

Protecting human life is the preeminent issue of our time.  Our Respect Life team at St. Benedict has provided us with information, held two showings of the movie Unplanned, run a baby shoe drive, heavily promoted Proposition 115, and offered us "Roses for Life!" If you are interested in helping with this ministry, please contact the office (719) 495-1426.

Abortion Healing Sessions Begin This Fall

Project Rachel, the post-abortion healing ministry for our diocese, will begin a healing group within the next few weeks. Our start date and meeting times will be determined by the availability of the participants. We will meet for 8-10 weeks, one evening each week. A Project Rachel team made up of a licensed counselor, a priest or deacon and a healed, post abortive facilitator will lead the groups. All groups are held in strict confidence.

Please consider sharing this healing opportunity with anyone you feel could benefit.

You can contact one of the following team members for more information, or share the contact info with others.

  • Deacon Dave Ross (719) 321-7258
  • Rhonda Miller (719) 649-6198
