This October the Catholic Church across the United States will observe Respect Life Month. This is a time for and your parish community to renew your dedication to all human life. CMN has been hard at work preparing new and exciting materials to assist you in your advocacy for all life.
Including a several new resources including: a vigil for an execution, a pro-life prayer service, prayers of the faithful, as well as social media resources and bulletin articles; this toolkit will give you all the resources you need to stand for life this October.
Prepared by Alexandra Carroll, M.T.S., this prayer service focuses on the life and ministry of St. Maximilian Kolbe, the patron saint of prisoners and the pro-life movement. This service lifts up the work of all pro-life advocates and highlights in a particular way the call we have to lift up the dignity of all life and work to end the use of the death penalty.
Help to educate your parish or community with this set of 6 short bulletin articles focusing on Catholic Social Teaching and the Death Penalty. The articles cover different aspects of Catholic Social Teaching as it applies to the death penalty. These articles can also be customized to include upcoming events and meetings occurring in your parish or community.
Inspired by the need for mercy in our society, this prayer vigil includes reflections on scripture and intersections for all those in need of healing. Centered around the call to end the death penalty, this vigil can serve as a thoughtful prayer tool in those times leading up to and in the aftermath of an execution.
