St. Agnes Respect Life Committee is organized to promote human life and dignity issues through support of the U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Life Issues and the Archdiocese of Louisville within St. Agnes Parish.

Our role is to design programs that help educate and mobilize the St. Agnes community in the support of Life Issue policies of the U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The Committee will create projects that raise funds in support of parish Respect Life Education Programs and organizations supporting respect life programs in the Greater Louisville community.

Meetings are held on the second Monday of February, April, June, August, October, and December at 7pm in Aloysius Hall.
