There are several Respect Life opportunities to share and pray during the month of October:
• The IHM Respect Life Committee invites you to join them to pray the rosary every Wednesday in October at 6 PM before the shrine to Our Lady of Fatima at the corner 57th and Washington Street.
• Respect Life Sunday – October 6
The Respect Life Sunday Annual Celebration Mass will be on October 6 at 10:30 AM at Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral. Two Respect Life awards are presented annually at this Mass. IHM parishioner Sally Jones, daughter of Jane and Mike Jones will be one of two North Central High School seniors receiving the Our Lady of Guadalupe Pro-Life Youth Award. She and Meggie McPherson of St. Pius parish are being recognized for their great efforts in fighting the culture of death and promoting a culture of life. They were chosen for their leadership in promoting the dignity of all human life as co-presidents of North Central Teens for Life and by example and service in their home and community.
