  • The Knights of Columbus completed a Respect Life Cross Project along our property on Newman Springs Road.  Each white cross represents 1 million children who have died since abortion became legal in 1973. 60 crosses were planted and represent 60 million babies lost since 1973. This is a visual reminder to pray for the protection of human life in all of its stages. Our Ignite Youth Group helped the Knights of Columbus paint and plant the crosses.
    “We enjoyed having the youth group assist. 
    If we have any other projects in the future we would very much like to work with the young men and women of Ignite again” said Douglas Walsh, Grand Knight.

      
    The teens recited the rosary with our Knights of Columbus, Parishioners and members of neighboring parishes from Saint May’s in Colts Neck, Saint Anselm in Tinton Falls and Saint Gabriel in Marlboro.  This was done by the 60 crosses on our property.  During the month of October, the crosses were a visual representation of the 60 million babies who have lost their lives due to abortion since it was legalized in 1973.

  • There was a presentation on Tuesday evening, October 24, 2017, at Church of Saint Leo the Great (Lincroft, NJ), to a young woman, Kerry Bates (student at Red Bank Catholic) for her design for “Respect Life”.

    We converted the design to lapel pins, and working with the Knight of Columbus Father McGivney Council No. 6392, the Council has been selling the pins at some of the area Churches to raise funds for Monmouth County Birthright and awareness for respecting life of the unborn.
