Respect Life Month

Respect Life Sunday is October 2nd this year and begins Respect Life Month: a time to intentionally pray for the protection of all human life. Please join a Life Chain in your local area, a peaceful and prayerful public witness for an end to abortion that offers a message of mercy and healing for those who are suffering as a result of abortion. Or take part in Rosary Coast to Coast, a movement to unite the nation in praying the Holy Rosary for healing of our country and its return to holiness.
