Our parish is not only very active in the fight to outlaw abortion, but we are also heavily involved in supporting women in crisis pregnancies, advocating for adoption, and fostering and supporting the families who choose to adopt.
The Infant of Prague
The original image of the child Jesus was given by St. Teresa of Avila to a Spanish princess who was to be married to a Bohemian prince. She took the image to Prague where it was soon venerated for its miraculous powers. The Infant of Prague is sign of the incarnation of Christ who became a child for us.
Information about the pro-life activities and the Infant of Prague is available in this side chapel.
The Guardian Angel statue is a French antique – restored by parishioner Jim Craft. It was given by the Cooley Family. The dedication plaque commemorates all those families going through the trauma of illness and loss of children.
Jesus Christ the Boy King
It is customary to recognize and honor the infant Christ at Christmas, but the Infant of Prague devotion reminds us of the childhood and humility of Jesus who, though a peasant child, was also King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
