Catholics standing up for life around central and southern Indiana

Criterion staff report

October is Respect Life Month in the Catholic Church. The first Sunday of the month is celebrated as Respect Life Sunday, which occurred this year on Oct. 3.

On that day each year, Catholics gather at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral in Indianapolis for a Respect Life Mass, and Catholics and Christians throughout central and southern Indiana join together for Life Chain, a peaceful, hour-long public witness of quiet prayer for respect for life at all stages organized through the National Life Chain organization.

Members from Life Chain events in Bloomington, Brookville, Columbus, Greencastle Indianapolis, Lawrenceburg and Terre Haute submitted photos of their local participants. †
