We Are Moved by Mercy: October is Respect Life Month
October 4th, 2016
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has designated October of each year as Respect Life Month and the beginning of a yearlong pro-life program for the U.S. Catholic Church. This year’s theme is “Moved by Mercy,” which draws on a quote from Pope Francis on the Jubilee Year of Mercy: “We are called to show mercy because mercy has been shown to us.”
The USCCB’s Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities has prepared a 2016-2017 packet for parishes, schools, and faith-based ministries. Materials and resources can be downloaded in English and Spanish atwww.usccb.org/respectlife.
