“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves” – Proverbs 31:8
Saint Anne parishioners are challenged to promote, protect and encourage respect for life from conception to natural death. We build our mission on the truth that the person before us is a unique and unrepeatable image of God, precious in His sight. Through prayer, education, evangelization, catechesis, and works of charity, Saint Anne Parish will promote the establishment of a culture of life that respects and supports the sacredness of human life from conception to natural death.
Additional information can be found by visiting USCCB Human Life and Dignity. As a gift from God, every human life is sacred from conception to natural death. For the Church, there is no distinction between defending human life and promoting the dignity of the human person. The Church strives to maintain this link between life ethics and social ethics.
Through the initiative of very committed parishioners this promote continues to be promoted around all Catholic communities in York County. Proceeds are distributed to varies organizations and local agencies.
