October is designated by the American bishops as “Respect Life Month.”
As I write we are beginning our fifth annual Respect Life Week here in Los Angeles. We have a record 90 schools in the archdiocese participating in our programs this year, and I am pleased to report that 25 schools in the Archdiocese of Kansas City are also using our materials.
