If we have no peace it is because we forgot we belong to each other.
Mother Teresa of Calcutta
A single mother has a back bone made of steel and heart made of gold.
Before you judge me make sure you are perfect.
I didn't set out to be a single parent. I set out to be the best parent I can be.....and that has not changed.
I am worthy of God's Love
About Us & Our Mission
We are Respect Life Ministry, committed to promoting the protection and respect of the worth and dignity of every human being at every stage of biological development, from conception to natural death, regardless of age, degree of perfection, or condition.
We are a Catholic Ministry at St. Andrew’s Cathedral in Victoria, British Columbia. We seek to be faithfully attentive to the Gospel of Life, especially as taught by the Catholic Church, and we are passionately committed to building up a Culture of Life in Canada that respects and honors each and every human being from conception to natural death. Inspired by God, fortified by prayers, armed with truth, and sustained by our dauntless love and respect for human life at every stage and age, we are committed to the dignity of every human being.
We have a broad spectrum of interests all aimed at creating an awareness of, and educating towards a Culture of Life within the difficult anti-life climate which the present culture embraces. We provide information that supports the unborn human fetus and born human being, the femininity of woman and the masculinity of man, family life, marriage, and motherhood and fatherhood. We show, by means of science, personal testimony, and the truths of the Catholic Faith how all life is worth living no matter how painful it can be at times.
Today’s culture offers its own set of legal values that allows for the destruction of over 100,000 unborn babies (human fetuses) (in Canada alone) each year, and enables suicide as a dignified end to suffering. This mindset is culturally promoted even though the majority of Canadians have clearly indicated that it does not align with their faith and family values.
Our culture has subtly, yet deeply, eroded our children’s need and right to have their parents educate them in their own cultural traditions, religious beliefs, understanding of human dignity, and sexual health. We invite and support all parents who wish to educate their children about the right to know and freely choose God, to understand the nature, and beauty of human love.
We are committed to supporting men and women, who are valiant in their motherhood, fatherhood, careers and professions of service. We are grateful for their loyalty and deep desire to live to the glory of God, who fills their hearts with the light of his grace, and his love of life. We are faithfully and unapologetically pro-life, pro-family, pro-woman, pro-motherhood, pro-man, pro-fatherhood, and pro-God!
Open Your Heart to Life
“All life has inestimable value even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor, are masterpieces of God’s creation, made in his own image, destined to live forever, and deserving of the utmost reverence and respect.” Pope Francis
It is our belief that every human being from the moment of conception is equal in value and dignity to the person in whom they find themselves conceived. With loving and honest support, both mother and child can bring much life and love to each other and to their community.
