Marking Respect Life Month Throughout the Archdiocese 

Posted

Respect Life Sunday, Oct. 2, begins Respect Life Month: a time to intentionally pray for the protection of all human life. There are opportunities in your area to participate in Life Chains, 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. You may also want to join 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. A listing of prayer opportunities conducted by local parishes or groups is below. Information on Rosary Coast to Coast: www.rosarycoasttocoast.com.
