Legislative & Public Affairs Committee
Responding to our call to be faithful citizens, this group learns about and develops action plans regarding issues of social justice. Committee members work with local, state, and national public officials and educate the parish and public about community issues. The committee is involved with Catholic Charities and the Catholic Conference of Kentucky, to publicly advocate for issues linked to Catholic Social Teaching.
Respect Life Committee
The “seamless garment is a metaphor for a consistent ethic of life, one which stands for the protection of the right to life and for the promotion of all the rights which enhance life, from the womb to the tomb.” These words, from the late Cardinal Joseph Bernadin (1983), reflect our Respect Life Committee’s approach to life issues. Affirmed by the Social Concerns Committee, we strive to respect all life from womb to tomb by adopting a consistently compassionate manner toward all persons who struggle with life issues and decisions. Committee members plan an annual Respect Life Prayer service, participate in educational seminars, and provide roses for newly baptized babies.
