October is Respect Life Month

The Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon stand with the Archdiocese of Portland in honoring the dignity of each human. We encourage everyone to seek the many resources available before pursuing abortion or suicide.

You are not alone.

Local people, parishes and organizations are available to walk with you on this journey. Visit archdpdx.org/pro-life for access to people and organizations who can help you through this trying time. We also encourage you to send us your prayer requests. Send an email to [email protected] to be included on our daily prayers.

Every person is created as the “Imago Dei,” the Image of God, with sanctity and dignity that can never be denied. Out of the profound reverence due to every human being, the Church provides support to build a culture of life and advocate for the most vulnerable.
