The first Sunday of October is observed as Respect Life Sunday. As Catholics, we are called to cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable, from the beginning of life to its end, and at every point in between. During the month of October, the church asks us to reflect more deeply on the dignity of every human life.
Volunteers with “40 Days for Life” take part in an effort to offer alternatives to abortion in Wilmington and hundreds of cities across the world.
