Respect Life

The Respect Life Ministry is focused on promoting the culture of life from conception to natural death at St. Mark and in Huntersville. Through our various activities and projects we encourage parishioners to become engaged in the battle to protect life and marriage and to study the Church's beautiful teaching on the marriage, children, and the dignity of the human person.  As noted throughout all ages of the Church, we oppose abortion, euthanasia, contraception, and same sex unions and embrace the Church's perennial teachings on life and marriage.

Some of our regular activities include:
