The first Sunday of October is observed as Respect Life Sunday.
The Archbishop of
Indianapolis presents the Archbishop O’Meara
Respect Life Award and the Our Lady of
Guadalupe Pro-Life Youth Award to outstanding leaders in the pro-life movement at the conclusion of the Respect Life Mass at SS Peter and Paul Cathedral.
The Conference of Catholic Bishops envision
that the entire year be focused on pro-life
education, pastoral care, advocacy, prayer
and worship that affirms the value of human
life. The Office for Pro-Life Ministry
distributes the Respect Life packets to all pastors and coordinators of parish pro-life groups, and thereby encourages year-round education and evangelization in the local parishes.
In collaboration with local ecumenical groups, the Pro-Life Office promotes the Life Chain along Meridian Street on Respect Life Sunday.
