Making a stand for life through prayer and education, the Holy Rosary Respect Life Committee works year-round to promote respect for life from conception to natural death. The committee sponsors many events such as the annual Respect Life Breakfast, the Baby Shower for Birthright each Mother’s Day; a pro-life essay contest for junior high school students; information booths at the Memphis Italian Festival and at the parish on Respect Life Sunday each October, and pro-life rosaries throughout the year. In addition, several members of the committee and people from other parishes make a visible, prayerful statement for life each Saturday morning by praying a rosary at each of the three abortion facilities in Memphis. Monthly meetings are held on the second Sunday of each month at 1:30 p.m.; all are welcome.

Diocesan Pro-Life Mass Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord
March 25, 2021 at 7:00 pm
A Rosary for life will be prayed at 6:00 pm
Bishop David P. Talley will be the celebrant
March 25 is the Feast of the Annunciation, marking the visit of the Archangel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary, announcing that she would be the mother of our Savior, the Word made flesh. It is also the day of an international pro-life celebration: the International Day of the Unborn Child. Established by St. Pope John Paul II to coincide with and honor the Feast of the Annunciation, the pope wanted people in every part of the world to celebrate the gift of life by remembering all unborn human life. In inaugurating this day in 1999, the great champion and defender of human life united the universal Church in a single act, boldly proclaiming the value of every human life while in the same moment stressing the necessary importance of defending the most vulnerable.
All are welcome to join us for the Diocesan Pro-Life Mass celebrating the Feast of Annunciation, March 25th at 7:00 PM, Holy Rosary Catholic Church. Most Reverend Bishop David P. Talley will be the celebrant.
The Feast of the Annunciation invites us to reflect upon the wonder of every human life, particularly the amazing world of the developing child yet to be born. John Paul II wanted a culture of life to be created and cultivated. Let us make this a greater reality!
