Sanctity of Life

Director of Sanctity of Life, MaryJo Werbiansky. Name: Mary Jo Werbiansky
Job: Head of Sanctity of Life
Email: mwerbiansky@stlukeorthodox.com

First Corinthians 13 tells us that the greatest of the spiritual gifts is love. One way to love Christ in others is to serve and care for them. Our church's sanctity of life ministry allows all parishoners the opportunity to give love to unborn children and their mothers. We offer assistance in the form of cribs, strollers, clothing, diapers, etc to expecting mothers in need. We also pray that those who consider abortion will realize that God's child is in their womb and give them the gift of life. There is also opportunity to share God's love with the unborn and their parents during the annual hike for life, and other events that we support. Thanks - MJ
