Our October Give Life challenge is to participate in Respect Life Month!
The theme for this year’s Respect Life Month is Every Life is Worth Living. As you’ll recall, this message is similar to the March for Life’s 2015 theme, “Every Life is a Gift!”
The USCCB has put together a great array of resources on the joyful truth that every life is worth living. One example of the stories and programs that you can share is an article entitled “A Perfect Gift,” about one family’s story of living life with their son Charlie, who has been gifted with Down Syndrome.
Additionally, this month there are several pro-live activities and events that you can participate in around your local community. 40 Days for Life runs through November 1st, and so far during this fall campaign, 264 lives have been saved!

Additionally, October 20th is the Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity, in which students across the country will stand in silent solidarity in remembrance and awareness of those who have been silenced by abortion.
