In response to the Gospel of Life, the members of Respect Life commit themselves to prayer, education, and action in defense of life. It is our purpose to foster an awareness of the dignity and sanctity of all human life, from conception to natural death. We are dedicated to observing, and promoting the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church on all life issues. Some of these include: abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, stem cell research, the death penalty and helping the poor, less fortunate, sick and lonely of the world.
"The Gabriel Project is a pro-life ministry that recognizes the sanctity of life from the moment of conception. We provide faith-based confidential and compassionate outreach to women during their pregnancy and beyond offering hope and assistance to any woman experiencing a crisis pregnancy. We respect all life and see the birth of each child as a fresh expression of the unfailing love of God. Our concern is not only for the unborn child, but also for each and every mother in need."
Expectant mothers or their family members are encouraged to call the hotline, available 24/7, at 830-358-8696

The mission of the Alamo Area Council is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
The mission of the Social Justice Ministry is to protect, enhance, and promote the four principles of the Church's Social Doctrine: the dignity of the human person, the common good, subsidiarity, and solidarity in our parish, community, and beyond. This is accomplished through prayer, education, advocacy, and community organizing related to social justice issues and/or campaigns.
Our vision is to be the living Body of Christ committed to the Gospel call “…As I have loved you, so you also should love one another” (John 13:34) and to be an effective resource and positive influence advocating the Church's social justice issues.
The mission of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVDP) ministry is to provide the necessities of life and spiritual comfort to the poor and economically depressed families and members of our parish and community in their time of need.
