Respect Life

Respect Life

Our Respect Life group educates the parish community on legislative issues at the grass roots level so that parishioners are made aware of what their individual commitment to this cause can be.  The committee announces the events of the Right to Life – Lifespan of Metro Detroit throughout the year.


The St. Jane Frances committee supports the Right to Life –   Lifespan of Metro Detroit and the Right to Life Northwest Macomb by sponsoring:

  • Annual Mother’s Day Flower Sale
  • Christmas Card Sale
  • Annual Spring Baby Shower and Fall Giving Crib (help local pregnancy centers with their material needs for mothers and infants)

Volunteers are always welcome to help with these efforts. 

Future  Events:
