Respect Life Sunday will be celebrated on the first Sunday in October.  
This year's theme is "I have come that they might have life, and have it to the full." 

Respect Life Sunday is an annual event promoted by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and celebrated in Catholic parishes and schools across the nation.

The Respect Life Program begins anew each year on Respect Life Sunday, the first Sunday in October. The program is highlighted in liturgies and marked by special events. The USCCB Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities publishes a program packet each year to call attention to numerous human life issues. These materials are especially helpful for priests, parish groups and other organizations. For more information and resources, click here.
