Spiritual Adoption


A 9-month journey of prayer for an unborn child who is at risk of abortion.

With great joy, we welcome Deacon Jim Dugard and Deacon John Clark to the Respect Life Ministry! The two men where ordained permanent deacons on December 6th, 2014 and have been assigned by Archbishop Thomas Wenski to help minister to the many families served by the Respect Life Ministry. They will assist Joan Crown, Respect Life Director, in guiding, mentoring and promoting the cause of life in the Archdiocese of Miami.

Thank you Archbishop!

January 22, 2015 - Washington D.C.

Joan Crown, Respect Life Director, traveled to Washington D.C. for the pilgrimage to the 42nd Annual March For Life on January 22, 2015, with 120 archdiocesan high school students and their chaperones. The pilgrimage included visits to the Holocaust Museum and to the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, a tour of the Monuments, prayer vigils at the Supreme Court and at the White House, a Day of Reflection on life issues and, of course, marching from the Lawn to the Supreme Court with hundreds of thousands of people from all over the country and the world!

Accompanying us as chaplain was Father Frank Permuy from Belen Jesuit High School, Respect Life Deacons Jim Duggard and John Clarke and Deacon Luis Cruz from Cardinal Gibbons High School. Father Frank gave a special blessing to the High School seniors preparing them for their new experience as college students next year.


The Spiritual Adoption Program of the Respect Life Ministry is an effective way to encourage prayer and educate about the miraculous development of the unborn child over the nine months of life before birth. Your prayers will help the unborn baby in danger of being aborted. Your prayers can help the mother contemplating abortion to choose life over death. 

A baby shower may be held at the end of the nine months to celebrate the birth of the spiritually adopted babies. The gifts could then be donated to the local Respect Life Office and will go directly to new mothers who are in need of assistance.

To start a Spiritual Adoption Program in your family, parish or school, please contact Barbara Groeber at the Respect Life Ministry of the Archdiocese of Miami (Phone: 954-981-2922)
