October is Respect Life Month

In October our Church celebrates Respect Life Month, and the first Sunday of October is observed as Respect Life Sunday.

As Catholics, we are called to cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable, from the beginning of life to its end, and at every point in between. During the month of October, the Church asks us to reflect more deeply on the dignity of every human life.

We pray that God may grant us the wisdom and courage to lovingly protect His gift of human life at every stage, in sickness and in health.
