Respect Life Month Kicks Off In October

Mom And Baby

This week, Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, Chairman of the Pro-Life Committee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) issued a statement recognizing the kickoff of Respect Life Month. Respect Life Month is recognized by the Catholic Church in the U.S. every October. This year's theme is "Christ Our Hope: In Every Season of Life." 

In his statement, Archbishop Naumann reminds us that though "attacks against human life seem to grow ever more numerous and callous, we know that Christ has conquered sin and death." Naumann also offered his prayers for "our common efforts to bring about a world in which every life is cherished."

Parish resources for Respect Life Month can be found at www.respectlife.org, and Bishop Naumann's full statement can be found on the USCCB website.
