Each October the Church in the United States celebrates Respect Life Month, and the first Sunday of October is observed as Respect Life Sunday. As Catholics, we are called to cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable, from the beginning of life to its end, and at every point in between. During the month of October, the Church asks us to reflect more deeply on the dignity of every human life.

Follow the simple steps below to celebrate Respect Life Month!


Join the Respect Life Month Novena!

October 13-21, 2023

Join thousands of Catholics across the country praying for the protection of human life, from conception to natural death.


Each day of the novena features a different pro-life prayer intention which is accompanied by a short reflection, suggested actions to help build a culture of life, and more. 


This short reflection highlights how we, as Catholics, are called to put our love for others into action, embracing radical solidarity with mothers and their children.


Take the pledge to prayerfully support pregnant women in your local community.

Walking with Moms in Need is a process in which Catholic parishes and communities “walk in the shoes" of local pregnant and parenting women in need to better support them.


Take the pledge to prayerfully support pregnant and parenting women in your community and to be kept informed on this nationwide effort.
