October is Respect Life Month, a time for Catholics to reflect more deeply on the sacred dignity of human life. Beginning on Respect Life Sunday (Oct 4., 2020), Catholics across the United States will recommit themselves to uplifting this core tenet of our faith.
Prepare for October's Respect Life Month activities with CMN's updated resource. This dynamic and user-friendly Toolkit provides dozens of education, advocacy, and prayer opportunities for individuals and communities looking to highlight the death penalty as an important life issue.
This toolkit is designed for College-Aged Adults. It provides resources to assist in educating, advocating, and praying for an end to the Death Penalty and promoting Restorative Justice on a college campus.
“Todos los cristianos y hombres de buena voluntad están llamadas hoy a trabajar no sólo por la abolición de la pena de muerte, sino también para mejorar las condiciones de las cárceles, en el respeto de la dignidad humana de las personas privadas de libertad.” - Papa Francisco
As Catholics, we are called to respect the dignity of all human life—regardless of the harm one has suffered or caused. That means we cannot simply stand by when experiencing COVID-19 behind bars could, for some, mean a de facto death sentence.
