Each October, the Catholic Church in the United States celebrates Respect Life Month to proclaim the immeasurable value of every person from conception to natural death. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops assists parishes, schools and other Catholic ministries by creating resources to help people "understand, value and become engaged with supporting the God-given dignity of every person — which naturally leads to protecting the gift of every person's life" through its Respect Life Program.

It kicks off every year on Respect Life Sunday, which this year is Oct. 4. The 2020-2021 Respect Life theme is: "Live the Gospel of Life." It explores how Jesus becoming man and redeeming us through his humanity reveals the dignity of all human life. For more information, contact Catherine Phillips, director of the diocesan Respect Life Office, at (501) 664-0340, ext. 326.
