HeartBeat of the Spirit

The St. Margaret Mary Pro-Life Committee works to spread the pro-life message by following the Bishops’ pastoral plan for pro-life activities:  education, pastoral care, affecting public policy, and prayer.  We work to bring attention to the sanctity of life for all people in all stages.
