To promote, through education and service, an understanding of the dignity of human life, from conception to natural death, and an unconditional love for all people, made in the image of God.
St. Mary's Aggies Promoting Life (SMAPL) functions as a committee of St. Mary's Advocates for Christ Today (ACT) and seeks to connect our parish with the Church’s mission to “instill respect for human life at all stages and to bring about a conversion of heart and mind for all to be open to God’s special gift of life.” SMAPL looks to raise awareness, educate, minister, and encourage prayerfulness among the faithful through activities such as Pro-Life Masses, Pro-Life Rally in the Capitol in Austin, Prayer events, and Pro-Life speakers as well as supporting the Good Samaritan Gabriel Project Life Center through drives to collect baby items for families in need, participation in the annual baby bank collection, and letter-writing campaigns that seek to ensure that our laws are based on a respect for life from conception to natural death.

Voter Registration Drive Sat. Sept. 24 & Sun. Sept. 25
As faithful citizens we are called to participate in the elections that decide who our leaders will be. However, it can be difficult to register for voting. Taking into account the importance of this year's election, we want to make voter registration as easy as possible. To make this happen we need volunteers to help with the registration process. The Voter Registration Drive will take place after every mass on Saturday September 24th and Sunday September 25th. We need enough volunteers, so each one can cover only a couple of masses.
But in order to be able to help with registration, one needs to be trained by the Brazos Country. This training will be held
Tuesday September 20th at 5:30 P.M
. We will meet at St. Mary's at 5:00 P.M. and carpool to the location of the training. Space is limited, so If you sign after Sept 5, we will confirm to you if there is space reserved for you.
If you have any questions contact Matt
