Respect Life program begins

The Respect Life Program begins anew each year on Respect Life Sunday, the first Sunday in October, beginning a year-long program of education, prayer and advocacy highlighted in liturgies and marked by special events.

The theme for 2013-14: "Open your hearts to life!"

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops publishes a program packet each year to call attention to numerous human life issues. The 2013-2014 Respect Life Program features eight pamphlets in a series called "Life Matters." Each presents convincing support for the teachings of the Catholic Church on major pro-life issues, with facts and reasoning drawn from science, history, law, sociology, and other secular sources.

Begun in 1972, the Respect Life Program stresses the value and dignity of human life. It is observed in the 195 Catholic dioceses in the United States. To learn more about the Respect Life program: www.usccb.org/respectlife.
