Pro-Life activities at St. John Vianney Parish are focused on the protection of all human life, from conception to natural death. We actively participate in diocesan events including The March for Life, local prayer vigils in Springfield and Granite City, and participating in organized efforts to contact our government officials regarding legislation that affects the dignity of human life in all stages. We also have many activities on a parish level throughout the year, including Respect Life Sunday activities for all PSR classes, the placement of crosses on the front lawn of the church to represent the number of babies lost to abortion, the annual signature ad campaign, a baby bottle fundraising drive for local right-to-life organizations, and benediction, adoration and prayer services for life.
