Respect Life Ministry at OLV-OLS
The Respect Life Ministry promotes the sanctity of human life and the dignity of a person from conception to death. This is done through informing, through retreats, taking action against laws that do not promote life, and through prayer. The Albany Diocese and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and the broader worldwide Catholic Church there are resources and events that you can participate in to promote the sanctity of every life.
At Our Lady of Victory our Respect Life representative is Ed Golden. On Saturday October 22, 2022, Ed Golden was commissioned as a new Respect Life Representative at the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany Annual Respect Life Month Mass with the Bishop. Ed and his wife Paula have also volunteered to head the OLV/OLS Respect Life Ministry. We thank Ed and Paula for their time and commitment on behalf of the parish!
The resources, links and events listed below are available throughout the Diocese of Albany and sometimes farther like with the Annual March for Life in Washington, DC. Any events directly related to our parish will be posted on our social media accounts like Facebook and Instagram.

THE RESPECT LIFE PRAYER
Father of all Life, we thank you that you have called us into being and made us the people of life.
Bless our brothers and sisters who dedicate themselves to be a voice for the voiceless,
a defense for the defenseless and a welcoming person for all who live in faith.
By their example, enable all of us to proclaim, celebrate and serve the gospel of life.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
