Respect Life Sunday, Part 1

Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good has sent us the following announcement for Respect Life Sunday:
On October 1, Catholics from around the country will observe "Respect Life Sunday" - a day on which we remember in particular the Catholic call to promote and defend the life and dignity of the human person. It is also an opportunity for us to recommit ourselves to working to end affronts to human life like abortion, war, poverty and torture.

Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good has created a bulletin insert to help inform parishioners about the Catholic call to protect human life and dignity. You may download the insert by clicking here or here. Please ask your pastor or parish office to place it in the parish bulletin for the weekend of September 30 - October 1st. If this is not possible, then we suggest you print out copies for distribution in the vestibule area of your Church or to hand out after Mass on Labor Day weekend.

We would also appreciate if you would drop a quick note to Eric McFadden at to let us know the parish and diocese in which the insert is being distributed. We would also like to know how it is being distributed.

Thank you so much for your commitment to Catholic Social Teaching and the mission of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good.

Best Regards,

The Catholics in Alliance Field Team
