Gospel of Life



To enliven the parish response to the universal respect and dignity appropriate to all human life by:

-Calling the parish to a deeper respect for life in all its stages

-Engaging the parish community in practices which better care for and celebrate God’s gift of life

-Sponsoring activities focused on life for the unborn, the disadvantaged and the elderly


Our committee coordinates the following activities for St. Irenaeus Church:

Forty Days for Life, Respect Life Month, Mass for Life, Lenten Adoration, Right to Life/Life Span Mother’s Day Carnation and Father’s Day Candy Sales.

Our GoL members offer assistance to local agencies in support of life including:
Birth Choice, Crossroads Care Center, Grace Centers of Hope, Lighthouse, Mary’s Mantle, Michigan Nurses for Life, and No One Dies Alone.
