St. Ambrose Pro-Life Committee
St. Ambrose Pro-Life Committee is a small yet active group of parishioners who meet on a bi-monthly basis at the parish center to discuss current events in our community and diocese related to pro-life issues.
We address topics forwarded to us by the Springfield diocese, such as legislation updates, church-based meetings, conventions, etc; as well as gain involvement in local issues and events such as Arms of Love Crisis Pregnancy Center’s Walk for Life and Baby Bottle Campaign as well as the city-wide Life Chain (held in downtown Alton). Our efforts also include working with area school children to help them understand that life is a gift from God and we want to help them develop their respect for life as they grow.
This past year we also sponsored a service at St. Ambrose Church, in conjunction with Arms of Love, to promote healing, peace and salvation for those affected by past decisions of abortion.
We welcome any parishioner, of any age, to come to a meeting and learn more about our group. Meetings are published in the church bulletin, or for more information please contact Dan Kenney at email@example.com or call the parish office at 466-2921.
