The Respect Life Commission serves under Bishop Daniel Mueggenborg to help educate the faithful of the Diocese on the Church’s beautiful teachings on a range of life issues. The commission is dedicated to helping with efforts to build a culture of life and increasing awareness of the sacredness of each human life, from conception to natural death.
Though direct assaults on life are ever-increasing, Catholics are called to reflect on their faith and then act to protect life in all its stages.
The Commission collaborates with the Life, Peace, and Justice Commission on overlapping "womb to tomb" messaging and events regarding life issues.
